Given that WIC serves 2.24 million infants, our point estimates suggest that WIC causes nearly 30,000 additional infants to be current on WCVs. Our results also indicate that WIC participation during pregnancy is associated with a higher likelihood of infants receiving vaccinations as well as an increase in the number of vaccines received.
Let [U.sub.i] denote the power reception rate at sensor node i and [U.sub.i] = [mu]([D.sub.i]) * [U.sub.Full], where [D.sub.i] is the distance from the node i to WCV and [U.sub.Full] is the full output power from the WCV for a single sensor node and [mu]([D.sub.i]) is the efficiency of wireless power transfer.
We also assume that when WCV is charging only one single node at one time, energy level of other nodes nearby will not get affected (because they will turn off the energy reception module of the battery if they are not scheduled to be charged).
In this simulation, we calculated the predicted probability of receiving a WCV for each child in child-parent uninsured pairs.
Our results suggest that Medicaid coverage for children is associated with a higher probability of receiving a WCV. After controlling for child's age, child's health status, child's race, parent's education, parent's age, family structure, family income, region, and MSA, we found that children in mixed pairs (p=0.05) and Medicaid pairs (p<0.01) were more likely to have a WCV than uninsured children.

Although Finland replaced WCVs with ACVs at a later time (booster vaccinations in 2003 and primary vaccinations in 2005), both countries detected Prn-negative isolates during 2011-2012.
