This historic 1956 image depicted Leo Kartman, ScD, public health scientist, collecting field data during a plague epidemiologic investigation in an unknown location. In this particular view, Dr. Kartman had captured a wild rodent using an animal trap from the Young Animal Trap Co. This animal would be analyzed in order to determine if it was hosting any plague-infected fleas.
In this particular view, an infant was receiving an oral vaccine, which would prevent him from acquiring the highly-infectious disease poliomyelitis (polio), caused by the poliovirus..
