This was the first illustration I created during the March 2020 lockdown from Nashville Tennessee. I had taken off work for a long weekend which started on Friday, March 13th. By Monday the 16th, schools in the area were shut down, on Wednesday the 18th we were furloughed from work. I had been following the updates and information on the Sars like pneumonia from Wuhan, that was sparing children, which seemed unusual, as children and the elderly are always labeled high risk groups. I wondered if a certain childhood immunization might have offered a bit of protection. I started digging into publications on childhood vaccinations by country, and noticed the age range and availability by year of the HIB vaccination.
