An American Women’s Hospital doctor ( in “AWH” armband) tries to administer a shot to a local child in Jellico, Tennessee. The AWH had a mobile health clinic that included vaccinations and inoculations as part of their service to the rural Appalachian region of the United States. The AWH car with its logo is visible in the background.)

This photo depicts how the AWH had to provide medical care where it could in Appalachia – in this case, the physician is vaccinating children outside. The group gathered is a mix of both boys and girls, white and African American.
