Caption: Smallpox vaccination. Young boy being vaccinated in Cameroon in 1968. The vaccines are being administered as part of the Smallpox Eradication and Measles Control programs. The public health technician is applying a 'Ped-O-Jet' jet injector to the boy's upper right arm. Smallpox was eradicated after a successful worldwide vaccination program. The last naturally occurring case was in Somalia in 1977. Though highly controlled in developed countries through widespread vaccination programs, measles is still common in less developed countries. It can spread rapidly in areas where vaccination is not widespread.
