This image was captured during the 2013 polio vaccination campaign, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staffer, Lisa K. Esapa, who described the scene as follows, “This Fulani grandmother laughs with the supervisors for the polio vaccination campaign in Taraba state, Nigeria. The nomadic Fulani follow seasonal grazing routes for their cattle. This family had only just arrived, setting up camp in the area the day before. If not for the National Stop Transmission of Polio (STOP) supervisor, and the program’s focus on outreach to underserved populations, this smiling woman’s grandchildren may have been missed during the vaccination exercise.” The picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of People-International.
