I recently had the privilege of joining 41 other travelers on a trip to India. Mission: administer polio vaccinations during the February National Immunization Day and get to know the people of India a bit better. It was a successful trip. This photo portrays the group heading down the path, immersed in the surroundings. I can feel the determination of my fellow travelers as they head down the road, knocking on the door of each house to immunize each child. It is an effort to eradicate polio from the world, and we are THIS CLOSE.
India has 5 National Immunization Days each year, allowing many to get involved in eradicating this terrible virus.
