Lynn Powe recently returned from a short-term service with Mission Doctors in rural Cameroon, West Africa. One of her tasks was to help with vaccinations, including recording them in the UNICEF Vaccination Record Book. Each child has a health record and is assigned a number. She quickly saw first-hand how different the recording process for vaccinations is in Cameroon than in the United States – children are generally not given a name for their first month of life, and their address is often much more specific than in the US. She was encouraged by the number of children who came to be vaccinated, as Lynn told us “It was packed!”
