Description:
This WHO poster uses an illustrated story to appeal to viewers resistant to immunization campaigns. It explains the threat of infectious disease, the consequences of refusing to immunize your child, and the advantages bestowed by protecting your child. In the story, one "distrustful" woman refuses to immunize her baby and later regrets it when disease strikes like a bolt of lightning and there is nothing she can do to help her young child. Meanwhile, another woman's child is immunized and distinguished by a virtual protective shield that defends against disease.
NOTE: Slide of original poster image is slightly blurry.
