Smallpox vaccination. Young girl being vaccinated in a village in Nigeria in 1967. The vaccines are being administered as part of the Smallpox Eradication and Measles Control programs. The global program successfully eradicated smallpox, with the last naturally occurring case 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.
