During supplemental immunization activities for polio, all children under 5-years of age, should receive the oral polio vaccine. This Nigerian family was stopped, on their way out of town, for polio vaccination on the go! This National Stop Transmission of Polio (STOP) supervisor, had to be quick on his feet, flagging down this family with three children, all of whom were vaccinated on this day. This picture earned photographer, Lisa K. Esapa, a tie for Second Place, in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of International Programs.
