UPS, Merck Plan Pilot Program to Vaccinate Adults at Home

United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) is considering venturing into the health care industry. According to a Reuters news report, the package delivery firm is preparing to test a service that will dispatch nurses to vaccinate adults in their homes. UPS has not publicly disclosed which vaccines would be offered, but vaccine manufacturer Merck & Co. has confirmed plans to participate in the pilot program.1 2

Merck markets a number of vaccines for adults, Zostavax to prevent shingles, Recombivax HB for hepatitis B and Pneumovax 23 for pneumococcal bacterial infections, as well as others.2 3

Merck spokesperson Pamela Eisele said that the company is looking forward to the partnership with UPS as an avenue to promote adult vaccination and increase access to medicines and vaccines to adults, including the elderly, in their homes. Chris Cassidy, who joined UPS last year from British vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline to oversee their global healthcare logistics strategy, told Reuters that, Over-the-threshold services is where the world is headed.”1

The testing of the new service will be conducted later this year. According to Reuters, workers at the UPS health care facility in Louisville, Kentucky will package and ship the vaccine to one of the more 4,700 franchised U.S. UPS stores. A home health nurse contracted by UPS’ clinical trial logistics unit known as Marken will collect the insulated package, transport it the “last mile” to the adult’s home and administer the vaccine(s) in the home.1 2

There has been speculation that UPS’s vaccine initiative could create cost savings by having contracted home health nurses administer the vaccines rather than highly paid doctors. However, the company must still figure out how to get medical insurance companies to pay for the in-home vaccination service.1

Stephen Buck, CEO of Courage Health and former vice president of McKesson Corp. believes that delivering vaccines at a competitive price may not be the only challenge for UPS. He says, Pharmacies and physicians may not be happy about a new player competing against them.”1

    Just when it couldn’t get more absurd.. Why not just have the mailman or garbage collector do the vaccinating?

    Many elderly are not up to fending off a determined nurse. But along with the sharply raising rates of childhood disease, there has been a sharp increase in Alzheimers. If that flu shot, and whatever else they’re selling, comes with another dose of aluminum (which I don’t think is in individual doses) and that aging brain has been getting them religiously for 20 years, I wonder if that could be a problem.

    I think this is the key to this whole scheme right here: “increase access to medicines and vaccines to adults, including the elderly, in their homes” Why would elderly, home-bound people, who aren’t being exposed to that many germs anyway and most likely are in fragile health, need to get vaccines up the wazoo?

    I think this is ripe for Medicare fraud. I can just see it now… elderly people who are in fragile medical health, maybe in early stages of dementia, etc. – the medical complex could pretty much do whatever they wanted to these people, say it was medically necessary, and then charge Medicare for the service. There are going to be a lot of 85 year olds suddenly “needing” a Hepatitis B vaccine so they can prevent this sexually transmitted disease that is a huge threat to them!

      I said mandatory vaccinations for adults was going to happen as soon as they took away philosophical exemptions. There are a lot of agendas being pushed. Primarily what this means is the same thing that the “war on drugs” means- We do not have the right to decide what we do or don’t put in our bodies. That’s why food and the environment is poisoned because we didn’t know and now that we do, don’t demand that it stops. Same issue, we don’t get to decide what we consume. And those with the power to decide have been doing it so long, it’s a well oiled machine and as someone else mentioned technology has only made it easier. What do we think has been happening with mass incarceration, war on drugs, and vaccines? We can’t even say no to being forced to murder people in a “war”. All about power and control.

    Might be a good idea to check out Fed X and see if they’ve also signed away their soul to BigPharma and Medicorp. This could be the final push that sends UPS into the dumpster. If people will stop using them for mail and packages they won’t have the revenue to even buy gas for their trucks. BigPharma and Medicorp aren’t going to carry them “on the cuff” if they aren’t able to get enough people “shot up”. There is some real interesting $hit that can be done to those trucks if we really want to push back.

    There’s a You-Tube lecture by Bill Gates who has now ventioned into epidemiolology and Public Health. He confesses that the end-game is to stabilize the world’s populaion at 700 million by 2030. The only way to achieve this 90 population contraction, (according to the elites, who only want a minimum of the rest of us around), is to vaccinate the rest of us. But using standard logic, if MMR and all these other ineffectual cocktails, had any benefit, population numbers should increase. I think the secret ingredient is Thimerasol, which is 80 x more toxic than Mercury. It attacks DNA and in tissue cultures csuses atrophy of human fibroblast cultures in about 3 weeks. The effect on the young population, if administered with frequent boosters, would be total sterilization by the time they reach childbearing age.

    There is a contraversial local community doctor in Crown Heights, Brooklyn who arranged a protocol with some contraversial rabbis in the Crown Heights to rule that since MMR is saving thousands of lives (without showing evidence), it justified being used without consent and independent of its ingredients. As a result, children not receiving the full quota of 35 shots prior to age 5 are no-,longer allowed in the yeshiva system. Given the lucrative financial reward, other Boroughs are trying to jump on the wagon. Parents are now in a dilemma of sending their young children to be force-vaccinated or expelled. At a recent annual Torah learning competition a child suffered an emotional breakdown having learned an entire book of Maimonides, and travelled to Brooklyn from Australia only to be turned back by the organizers. According to the local doctor, his MMR was not current. The parents contacted the the Head of Immunization at DOH who sided with the parents and against the doctor. Yet the organizers continued to support the local doctor and rabbis, pushing aside a written statement from DOH that they did not support such draconian tactics (which actualy violate the Geneva Convention forbidding forced vaccination in the absence of a declared national emergency.
