This image was captured while Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) researchers were in the village of Rugan Fulani, located in the Kanoma-ward of Nigeria, on October 3, 2013, as part of an initiative to vaccinate nomadic children under 5-years of age. This child, a 3-month-old, zero dose female, was receiving the oral polio vaccine (OPV) in this nomadic settlement. However, initially, she had cried incessantly, and refused to be vaccinated. It was decided to revisit the baby after vaccinating the other children. Upon returning, her grandmother suggested we take her outside. Shown here, cradled in her mother's arms, and staring at the sky, she accepted the vaccine. Her grandmother's response was, "She has Wings!”
