SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. — Vending machines at one Pennsylvania University doesn’t just dispense soda and snacks — it sells the morning-after pill.
At Shippensburg University, getting access to Plan B, the emergency contraception pill is as easy as getting a soda. Students can now buy the pill at a vending machine on campus.
“We had some conversations with them and did a survey of the student body and we got an 85 percent response rate that the students supported Plan B in the House Center,” said Dr. Roger Serr, Vice president of Student Affairs at Shippensburg.
The university does not profit from the sales. It pays $25 for one dose and that’s exactly what the student has to pay.
Dr. Serr says that somewhere between 350 and 400 doses are sold each year to the female population. The pill can be legally sold over-the-counter to anyone 17 or older.

One of the first pregnancy test vending machines to be installed in a bar will be Pub 500 in Mankato, Minn.. Screen shot via CBS News.

A pub in Mankato, Minnesota called Pub 500 has voluntarily allowed a non-profit organization to install vending machines dispensing pregnancy tests. One of the organizations founders, Jody Allen Crowe, suggested the idea to the owner in effort to help women make better choices about alcohol consumption if they think they might be pregnant.

The organization behind the vending machine is Healthy Brains for Children which promotes refraining from alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Crowe has written a book suggesting that prenatal alcohol exposure may lead to aggressive behavior later in life and possibly cause brain damage. The organization seeks to reduce, if not eliminate, fetal alcohol syndrome.

The bar’s owner, Tom Fredrik, said it didn’t take much convincing to get him on board.

Crowe further told CBS News, “How many times have you heard people say, ‘Oh, I didn’t realize I was pregnant’,” when speaking to unintentional alcohol consumption during the early stages of pregnancy.

The vending machine will be installed in the women’s bathroom and will take credit cards and debit cards. The cost of a vending pregnancy test will be $3.
