This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: Booster Vaccines challenge.
For a few years in the 1980s I ran the photo department of a medical research institute. The institute was one of the establishment’s responsible for developing the annual flu vaccination each year.
Running the department gave me the opportunity to set up a variety of photos at evenings and weekends. One of these sessions involved a syringe lit with coloured gels on the studio lights to give the syringe an eerie appearance.
One of the syringe photos was used on a magazine cover a few years later.
