Caption: Rocky Mountain spotted fever vaccination clinic, 1930s. People waiting to be vaccinated free of charge against Rocky Mountain spotted fever, a fatal disease initially identified in regions of the Rocky Mountains. Researchers at the Rocky Mountain Laboratory in Hamilton, Montana, confirmed the cause as Rickettsia bacteria transmitted by ticks. By 1924, a vaccine had been developed. Photographed in the spring of 1931 at a vaccination clinic in Darby, Montana, USA.
