Photographed during an Indian polio vaccination campaign, this image depicts Dr. Muhammad Furqan Nabil, as he was conducting a morning briefing on how to vaccinate children, post-vaccination finger marking, and filing of the requisite records documenting the vaccination campaign details.
”Polio spreads from person to person, invading the brain and spinal cord, causing paralysis (inability to move). Because polio has no cure, vaccination is the best way to protect people, and is the only way to stop the disease from spreading. The spread of polio has never stopped in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. After the spread of the polio virus had previously been stopped, it has been reintroduced and continues to spread in the Horn of Africa, Cameroon, and Syria.”
