Captured in Haiti, in April, 2014, this image depicts the launch of the rotavirus vaccination campaign. With government officials present, this young child, cradled by his mother, is shown receiving the oral rotavirus vaccine that was being administered by a public health official.
Additional Information:
“Rotavirus is a contagious virus that can cause gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines). Symptoms include severe watery diarrhea, often with vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain. Infants and young children are most likely to get rotavirus disease. They can become severely dehydrated and need to be hospitalized and can even die.”
