Photographed in in the capital city of Shimla, in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, this image depicts three sanitation workers in the process of receiving a one-time, four-site anti-rabies vaccination.
Additional Information:
This vaccination technique has been recently introduced by Dr. Omesh Kumar Bharti, one of India’s Field Epidemiologic Training Program (FETP) graduates, and has been found to be immunogenic, with a high acceptability and compliance, especially among sanitation workers, as compared to the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) method, consisting of three shots administered over a four-week period.
