If Bill Gates has his way, developing country villagers a few years hence will be getting cellphone messages when it's time for their children's vaccine shots.
 
WorldNetDaily reports that Gates foresees a time when parents will register their newborn's birth, fingerprints and location on their cellphones and get calls when it's time for that booster shot. 
 
With GPS location ability on phones, children can even be tracked down to make sure they get vaccines promptly. Eight million children die annually... two-thirds of those deaths could be prevented with proper vaccines. 
 
Gates said Nigeria or northern India would be good places to start, since vaccination rates there are around 50%.
