Spouses sometimes accompanied smallpox workers to their postings. Families with children might remain in the local headquarters city or in their home.

Lidia Khodakevich (USSR), wife of epidemiologist Dr Lev Khodakevich (USSR), often went into the field with her husband. Here, she coaxes a woman holding her child with smallpox to step out of the shade so that Dr Khodakevich can examine the child and take samples for laboratory tests.
