Captured in 2016, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff member, Stefanie White, this image depicted CDC Quarantine Public Health Officer Salimah Shaheed, as she was inspecting a dog importation at the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. CDC regulates dogs imported into the United States, to ensure they appear healthy, and are fully vaccinated against rabies. CDC staff review dog importations at 18-international airports, and land ports of entry. At other airports and land borders, CDC works with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers, who inspect the imported dogs to make sure CDC’s requirements are met. This picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of Programs-Domestic and People–Domestic.
