Description:Caption:
This image was created in September, 2014, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Heath Scientist, and Special Assistant to the Director, Nancy S. Andrade, M.P.A., and depicts two vaccinators standing aside their UNICEF transport vehicle, in the town of Ebebiyín located in Kié-Ntem Province, Equatorial Guinea, near the border of Equatorial Guinea and Cameroon. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
Additional Information:
The scenario took place during a polio vaccination campaign targeting children ages 0 to 5 years of age. These two women had just finished a long day of walking from house to house, and vaccinating children. The blue box on one woman’s shoulder contained the vaccine, and the papers in the other woman’s hands had been used to record the vaccinations. The UNICEF vehicle displayed a poster on its passenger door advertising the campaign. Though the women looked very serious, they were actually very excited to take this photograph, and were proud to talk about their work.
