Among other CDC EIS officers, This photo shows Dr. Karl Western (right) throwing a Frisbee with children in one of the refugee camps set up in southeast Nigeria during the Biafran war.

In 1967, the CDC was asked to assist the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in its disease control and death prevention efforts during the Nigerian-Biafran war. Since smallpox was still prevalent in Nigeria, CDC officials vaccinated the villagers as they entered these camps. Under ideal conditions, and with a well organized grouping of vaccinees, one technician using a vaccination gun could vaccinate 1,000 people per hour. In addition to smallpox and measles, a pertussis vaccine was also administered after many individuals came down with whooping cough.
