Trump Administration Collaborates with McKesson for COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

Trump Tweet
Oh really, Mr. President?

Do you think the President and his family - ALL of them - will be getting any of the Operation Warp Speed vaccines as soon as they are available? Are any of them in clinical trials right now?  That Tweet in the photo is from 2014.  Below is a press release from HHS.


Trump Administration Collaborates with McKesson for COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

Under the leadership of President Trump, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Department of Defense (DoD), in support of Operation Warp Speed (OWS) announced today that McKesson Corporation will be a central distributor of future COVID-19 vaccines and related supplies needed to administer the pandemic vaccinations.

“Today’s announcement puts another building block in place as the Nation moves toward a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine,” said CDC Director Robert Redfield, M.D.. “America’s march toward one or more safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines is a combined effort between American industry and the federal government. McKesson is a leader in their field, and we welcome their expertise and dedication to public health.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is executing an existing contract option with McKesson to support vaccine distribution. The company also distributed the H1N1 vaccine during the H1N1 pandemic in 2009-2010. The current contract with McKesson, awarded as part of a competitive bidding process in 2016, includes an option for the distribution of vaccines in the event of a pandemic.

Detailed planning is underway to ensure rapid distribution as soon as the FDA authorizes one or more vaccines.  Once these decisions are made, McKesson will work under CDC’s guidance to ship COVID-19 vaccines to administration sites.

My spam filter thinks I have nothing better to do Monday, so has let this through for my edification.

#JAMALive Q&A: Paul Offit, MD
Monday, August 24, 12:00pm - 12:45pm (CDT)
Join us Monday for Paul Offit on the COVID19 vaccines coming through phase 2 trials. Let us know if you'll join.
The bravery of Offit and that other geriatric Tony Fauci never cease to amaze me. Knowing how deadly this virus is old folks like them, one would think they’d be self-isolating in some Bio-level 3 apocalypse bunker under some remote desert... or perhaps they know something we don’t know?


On November 3, either Trump gets re-elected, or else Biden. After all my research, I could NEVER vote Biden&the Dems. So I will vote Trump. This whole thing is bigger than ANY POTUS, and at least under Trump, vaxxxes will not be mandatory. Bigger control group that way....
I don't wanna see AoA get too political.
