As we were driving by the Health Department the other day, our ten year old piped up and said:
“Dad, do you know what would be a great idea? Vaccine pops. You know, lollipops with vaccines built in. Or maybe popsicles, since those are even easier to eat. That would be awesome, because everybody hates shots.”‘
Brilliant. Ignoring for the moment that delivering vaccines into an acid-filled stomach might not be a particularly effective approach, this sort of creative thinking that has me convinced that the world would be a better place if all of the bigwig think tanks included a few imaginative kids.
