This image was created in August, 2014, on behalf of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Heath Scientist, and Special Assistant to the Director, Nancy S. Andrade, M.P.A., while in Equatorial Guinea, near the city of Niefang, during a polio vaccination campaign. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
Nancy developed surveys to administer during the campaign, which sought to gain information from community members, on if, and how they knew about the campaigns, what they knew about polio, and what additional information they would like to receive about immunizations. Here, Nancy was pictured with a gentleman who was very eager to learn about polio, and the campaign, and who was grateful for the assistance being provided. Campaign team members offered him some stickers to post in his business that described polio, and the importance of vaccinating children.
