UPS To Send Nurses For In-Home Vaccinations

United Parcel Service (UPS) is preparing to test a service which will dispatch nurses to vaccinate adults in their homes, according to Reuters.
While UPS did not disclose which vaccines would be used in the project,
vaccine manufacturer Merck & Co told Reuters it was exploring a

“Over-the-threshold services is where the world is headed,” said UPS global healthcare logistics strategy head, Chris Cassidy – who joined the company last year from GlaxoSmithKline.
He’s how the program will operate, per Reuters.
“Workers in UPS’ 1.7 million-square-foot healthcare complex at Worldport 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 patient’s home and administer the vaccine, which will target a viral illness in adults.”
UPS purchased Marken in 2016. CEO Wes Wheeler, who is overseeing the project, says the aim of the test is to “see if we can connect all these dots.”
The move into healthcare comes as the parcel delivery business prepares for a cooling economy as well as competition from Amazon – which is in the process of rolling out its own logistics network in order to cut costs.
The UPS project is partially aimed at ways to increase adult vaccination rates, however the project faces hurdles – such as how to get medical insurers to pay for the new service.
Merck, a major UPS healthcare customer, has a portfolio of vaccines for viral illnesses ranging from shingles and hepatitis B to the flu. Spokeswoman Pamela Eisele said the company is considering the project as it looks for new ways to increase access to its medicines and vaccines and boost adult vaccine rates.
Experts said the UPS project could also save money by having contract home nurses, rather than higher paid doctors, administer the vaccine. But the test, a first for a large U.S. shipper, is not a guaranteed slam dunk for UPS: Marken’s CEO said it must figure out how to get medical insurers to pay for the new service. –Reuters
GoFundMe Battles Anti-Vaxxers
While UPS explores mass vaccinations, GoFundMe has banned anti-Vaxxers from their platform, according to the Daily Beast.
“Campaigns raising money to promote misinformation about vaccines violate GoFundMe’s terms of service and will be removed from the platform,” GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne told the Beast.
“We are conducting a thorough review and will remove any campaigns currently on the platform.”

My Grandfather took exactly zero vaccinations in his lifetime. By the 1980s each human was scheduled for 4 different types of inoculations and by the year 2017 over 56 vaccinations are scheduled by the CDC starting at birth. The adverse effects of vaccination are reaching epidemic proportions and it is forecast that one in two children born in the US will be autistic in the future. Vaccinations are the foundation of the world take over and the makers are now protected from prosecution even if their product causes injury or death.
