Starving, malnourished children - give 'em vaccines

The BBC 'Today' news programme was on good form this morning (3rd July 2015). They did a piece on poverty in India, describing the state of some children in Gujarat, and linking it with Government promises at the last election, and the fact that it was now intent on reducing expenditure.

And did you know (I didn't until the BBC informed me) that there was not even enough money to get the children properly vaccinated.

Now, there's a scope. Starved and malnourished children need vaccinations!

Well, it might be a priority for the BBC, in their regular role of salesmen for the Big Pharma companies. But I doubt that it is on the priority list of anyone else but the vaccine makers!
