Miriam Orellana (center in the photo) has been a nursing assistant for 37 years. She arrives at the Alonzo Suazo health center in Tegucigalpa at 6 am to prepare the cooler containing vaccines to be administered during the day and gather the paperwork necessary to keep vaccination schedules. During this Vaccination Week in the Americas, she coordinates crews that will go house to house to vaccinate. On this particular day the Kennedy colony was selected.
