Description: Caption:
Nine Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Quarantine Stations, distribute life-saving drugs that are not commercially available for emergency use, when requested. Because the quarantine stations are located at airports, the drugs can be shipped quickly, when time is urgent. This image depicted Paul Livingston, Quarantine Public Health officer, at CDC’s Atlanta, Georgia, Quarantine Station, as he prepared a shipment of diphtheria antitoxin, to be air-freighted to a hospital. The picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of Programs-Domestic and People-Domestic, by photographer, Olubunmi Akinkugbe.
