These Weird New Tricks Are Being Used to Vaccinate Your Child

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funds many different vaccine operations in third world countries.

A recent report has stated that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (the foundation with more money than sense), has plowed $100,000 into the development of small pink and blue silicon bracelets to remind mothers living in developing countries that is time for their child to be vaccinated.

According to Change Generation, children require twenty vaccinations by the time they are four to keep fit and healthy. Each bracelet has a series of numbers representing the months of the year and a series of symbols representing the vaccinations required.

Each time a mother visits the clinic to have her child vaccinated, the nurse punches through the symbol representing the vaccine and records the dose.

Change Generation reported that local nurses were continually walking from village to village, trying to locate mothers whose babies had missed their vaccinations. Cornell University student Lauren Braun decided that a solution to the problem was needed and specifically designed the silicon bracelets to accommodate. Change Generation states:

“If the pilot is successful, Braun (who manufacture the bracelets) will apply for a phase two grant worth another $1 million. That would allow her to invest in more pilots (she is keen to try it in Africa) and develop more bracelet sizes. The current version is one-size only, and too small for some older babies with thicker wrists and ankles.”

Braun stated to reporters that she is now interested in speaking with the pharmaceutical industry about public-private partnerships, as she believes that this is the way to reach scale quickly as the bracelets are a simple and cheap way to get more kids vaccinated. [1]
