A covenant/promise to the extent that you able to do so, under the
direction and care of a Medical Doctor, to elect to administer yourself and
all legal minors to whom you are parent or guardian all vaccines
recommended by your Local Vaccination Recommendations which are appropriate
for the patient’s medical condition is a valid consideration in exchange of
grant of rights.

This is not a condition (precedent) though. And it would not make much
sense to make it a condition precedent because licensor wants to impose an
ongoing duty to perform; not just preceding but rather subsequent to the
grant of rights...
