I am a concerned parent that lives in a school district where parents opting out of vaccination by using the religious exemption is about 6%. As a parent that vaccinates their child and sees the tremendous value of vaccines, I am concerned about children endangering my child because they are not vaccinated. Are my fears founded or does vaccinating my child protect them from these children that aren’t vaccinated.
We are working on a low cost device that is used with a syringe. Its use results in a substantial increase in the intradermal (ID) injection success while requiring minimal training in Mantoux technique. The current use of ID vaccination is limited to BCG and rabies and TB testing. Would you please suggest vacines in development that would likely benefit from a simple ID injection device.
