As a concerned parent of a child, damaged by vaccines, I am a constant "googler" of deaths and adverse reactions to vaccines to add to my database. I came across two links, your website, and later the following article. I thought you may appreciate the INDIANA connection.
INDIANAPOLIS -- A national strategic flu vaccine reserve will be stored and distributed by an Indianapolis company under an agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The company, Sentry Logistic Solutions, which was founded in 2004, will store and ship more than 500,000 doses from its 53,000-square-foot pharmaceutical cold chain logistics center. No financial or contractual details were announced. A Sentry spokeswoman said the contract starts immediately. Sentry leaders saID the inventory management systems keep track of the drugs' temperature history and expiration dates. The company also will be able to respond quickly to outbreaks or vaccine shortages. The doses will be stored at between 35 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit. The company's storage and distribution services were designed to help government, hospitals and public health care agencies make proper storage arrangements for vaccine stockpiles, said Jennifer Marcum, Sentry's chief executive officer, in a statement.
