Captured in 2012, in the Lao People's Democratic Republic (LPDR), this image depicted a group of pregnant women leaving an influenza vaccination clinic in Champasak Province. In the background, women had gathered beneath the shady trees, while also waiting to receive their flu shots.

This activity took place during the country’s launch of a seasonal influenza vaccination program with its objective, to protect pregnant women and other adults at high risk of serious flu-related complications. The program was the product of a collaboration begun in 2006, between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Lao Ministry of Health, to develop the country’s influenza public heath capacities. The vaccine was provided by Walgreens, which donated 375,000 doses of trivalent inactivated vaccine (commonly called flu shots), directly to Lao PDR.
