Captured in the town of Dadaab, Kenya in December, 2013, this image shows the Kenyan Field Epidemiology Training Program (KFETP) immunization team, as they were preparing to vaccinate one of the children who’d been hidden in a makeshift baby carrier. Here, the mother was holding her apprehensive child, while in the foreground, an FETP resident was readying the child's dose of polio vaccine.
Additional Information:
Such vaccinations were part of the Kenyan in-process evaluation of the Inactivated Polio Vaccine (IPV), and Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV) supplementary immunization activities, which were taking place at this time. See the link below, for more information on the CDC’s polio eradication efforts.
