Entitled, “Measles Vaccination Campaign in Ethiopia”, this image was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Monique Petrofsky, BSN, MPH, a Captain in the U.S. Public Health Service, and a staff member in the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), who at the time, was acting as an observer to the Global Immunization Division’s mass measles vaccination campaign. This photo was taken in the Ethiopian Highlands, while on a mission to find, and ensure the successful vaccination of shepherd children, who might have been missed. Monique encountered this child and his father, who were working with these horses in order to thresh this gathering of wheat. The image earned Monique the First Place award in the 2011,
Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of International People.
