Todd Buck created this illustration to accompany a cover story discussing updated recommendations for routine vaccinations of children and adolescents by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

Depicted is a four year old boy and various bacteria and viruses discussed in the article, such as influenza, tetanus, pertussis, pneumococcus, poliovirus, and diphtheria. The background also consists of a vaccination schedule recommended by the Center for Disease Control.
