$138 Million Government Contract Will Fund Production Of 500 Million Pre-Filled COVID-19 Vaccine “Injection Devices”

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

    Just when you thought that things couldn’t get any stranger, two U.S. government agencies have taken things to an entirely new level.  The U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have just put out a press release that is absolutely jaw-dropping, but so far hardly anyone is talking about it.

    According to the press release, a 138 million dollar contract has been awarded to ApiJect Systems America for two projects known as “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA”.  Apparently the goal of these projects is to have vast numbers of “injection devices” ready to go once a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available.  The following comes directly from the official website of the Department of Defense

    “Today the Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, announce a $138 million contract with ApiJect Systems America for “Project Jumpstart” and “RAPID USA,” which together will dramatically expand U.S. production capability for domestically manufactured, medical-grade injection devices starting by October 2020.

    Spearheaded by the DOD’s Joint Acquisition Task Force (JATF), in coordination with the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, the contract will support “Jumpstart” to create a U.S.-based, high-speed supply chain for prefilled syringes beginning later this year by using well-established Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) aseptic plastics manufacturing technology, suitable for combatting COVID-19 when a safe and proven vaccine becomes available.

    Today, there are about 328 million people living in the United States.  But the press release states that the plan is to produce “over 500 million prefilled syringes” in 2021

    The contract also enables ApiJect Systems America to accelerate the launch of RAPID USA manufactured in new and permanent U.S.-based BFS facilities with the ultimate production goal of over 500 million prefilled syringes (doses) in 2021. This effort will be executed initially in Connecticut, South Carolina and Illinois, with potential expansion to other U.S.-based locations. RAPID will provide increased lifesaving capability against future national health emergencies that require population-scale vaccine administration on an urgent basis.

    So that would be enough “injection devices” to vaccinate every man, woman, and child in the entire country one and a half times.


    Right now, researchers all over the globe are racing toward the development of a vaccine, but as I have discussed previously, that is not going to be an easy task.

    And on Tuesday Dr. Anthony Fauci openly admitted to a U.S. Senate committee that there is no guarantee that a vaccine “is actually going to be effective”

    As drugmakers across the world race to develop a coronavirus vaccine, White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “There’s no guarantee that the vaccine is actually going to be effective.”

    Fauci delivered the somber warning Tuesday to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions during a hearing about the road to reopening businesses across the nation.

    In addition, because there are multiple strains of COVID-19 already running around out there, one vaccine may not be able to cover them all.  So this could create a need for “multiple vaccines”, and this is something that NIH Director Francis Collins has openly acknowledged

    Several vaccines will likely be needed to combat the coronavirus and immunize groups of people in America and abroad, U.S. National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said in an interview.

    So when the time finally comes, there may be more than one vaccine that authorities are pushing everyone to take.

    But for now, there is no vaccine, and some health officials are pushing for social distancing restrictions to remain in place for months to come.

    For example, Fox News is reporting that the top health official of Los Angeles County is warning that the local “stay-at-home order” may have to be extended until August…

    Los Angeles County will likely continue its stay-at-home order through the summer, officials said Tuesday, as the coronavirus wreaks havoc on the economy and patience continues to wear thin for some calling for the state to reopen and for normal life to resume.

    County Public Health Director Barabara Ferrer said the order will be extended “with all certainty” at the Board of Supervisors meeting, possibly until July or August, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    And apparently L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti is on the same page.  In fact, he has once again stated that there will be no return to normal until a cure or a vaccine comes along

    “I think quite simply she’s saying we’re not going to fully reopen Los Angeles — or anywhere in America — without any protections or health orders in the next three months,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

    “I think we know it’s going to be even longer than three months. … We’re not moving past Covid-19, we’re learning to live with it. We’re not going to go back to pre-Covid life any time soon” or move forward without a medicine or vaccine.

    I feel so badly for those living in the Los Angeles area because it certainly looks like the next three months are going to be really rough.

    Of course, there are other large cities that are facing similar timelines.  Just check out what is being reported regarding the outlook for New York City…

    New York City may not fully reopen until August after Gov. Cuomo advised that each phase of the four phase restart plan could take up to two weeks to implement.

    Parts of the state of New York will be ready to reopen on May 15, this Friday, after meeting Governor Cuomo’s strict set of seven requirements.

    We are only in mid-May right now.

    Could you imagine being forced to stay home for the next three months?

    Sadly, that is what millions of Americans will be facing.

    And on Tuesday Dr. Fauci actually suggested that many schools will need to remain closed as the next school year begins

    Anthony Fauci, MD, revealed Tuesday morning that a return to school in the fall “would be a bit of a bridge too far,” during a Senate Committee hearing. News of likely continued homeschooling for the next school year will probably be met with groans and frustration by harried parents struggling to balance working from home and also managing remote learning and having their children home 100 percent of the time.

    Our entire society is melting down because of this virus, and if we can’t handle this crisis, what are we going to do when much worse things start happening to us?

    Sometimes I wish that we could roll back the clock and go back to 2019.

    Life seemed so much simpler back then, and things are only going to get crazier in the weeks and months to come…

      1. If I want a flu vaccine, why are the ones from 2018 or 2019 no longer effective? Oh, I see, because the strains mutate and are different. OK, early on the “medical experts” said this COVID-19 also was mutating. Further, there hasn’t been a vaccine developed for the strain that exists today. So, why are they putting something in syringes, that won’t be effective in a year, or at all, since it hasn’t yet been proven? Exactly what is going into those syringes?

        • You are Right Red in FL. !

          In the very least, it is all about the benjamins! At worst, about mass assassinations or mind control and enslavement!

          This is Hitler on Steroids, LSD, Crack, PCP, vodka, Crystal Meth, and flesh eating bacteria!, in the sense that it is not possible to co-exist with these vampire parasites! All trillions times more life threatening than COVID-19!

          Death to the fucking psychopaths!

          Us or Them! Obviuosly!

      2. mmmmmm ??????

      3. $0.28 per pre-filled suinge?? I don’t think so

      4. $0.28 per pre-filled syringe?? I don’t think so

      5. Ok, so why are they not promoting the fact that if people are in a very healthy condition they are not going down hard with this virus, or the same with people who are taking high doses of vitamin CD and others. I would like to see a study since everyone seems to be so fast and heavy with statistics, of how many people in a ketogenic or other healthy measurable states are resistant to the virus or are being admitted to the hospital. In addition, how about all of these doctors on YouTube that claim this can be fought by being in these above mentioned states, how about they purposefully infect them selves with the virus. In addition have a group of “patriots” do the same and have a national spotlight on them as they do this as a front line confrontation against the deep state vaccine promoting powers. As Dr. Darren Schmidt mentioned in his recent video, doctors have wear golden handcuffs by the AMA preventing them from healing people, just treating symptoms. To me the confrontation is within oneself: are you going to continue to eat and drink whatever you want, disregarding the short and long term consequences, as difficult as it is to resist in this psychotic profit driven programming deluged environment. Methinks the virus is shortening the consequential timeline. And the more we act like sheep the more we are treated as such. I’m not judging how people want to treat their bodies but the bar is rising. Over the last few years I’ve warned my employees about their diets to no avail and watched one turn into a diabetic hunchback and another last week lose the left side of his brain to a stroke. I went carnivore for 5 weeks in October and in week two a growth I had on my nose for decades disappeared and has not returned. The battle starts within.

      6. Angry, angray RINO’s (rawr) think Dr. Feltcho is completely ridiculous…

        …Yet, the vaccine certificates still keep coming.

        “Essential” workers, too-big-to-fails, and their spin-off’s never seem too motivated, not to be collaborators, for some mysterious reason, that no one could put their finger on.

      7. “Could you imagine being forced to stay home for the next three months?

        Sadly, that is what millions of Americans will be facing.”

        That’s why people will gladly accept the vaccine (and its identifying quantum dots or other marker to prove they’ve had it), so they can participate in life again.

      8. Say Merry Christmas and American exceptionalism, and take the Mark of the Beast.

        We have a state church and an underground, like in Red China. And, this news item, here, is a fine litmus test.

        (I visited one that was using UN WCOC slogans and thought Frosty was the reason for the season.)

      9. Most of the people who would have benefited from a vaccine will be dead. Otherwise, most everyone will have developed the appropriate immunity. Why do the sheep loch themselves up so willingly and patiently await orders for the mandatory inoculation.

      10. Being done this way for many reasons:

        1. Many trust military;
        2. Guns and force including tanks, aircrafts, drones, and weapons;
        3. Military immune from lawsuits;
        4. Secrecy maintained;
        5. Companies protected;
        6. State and local government cannot oppose and have that excuse;
        7. Opposition treated as waging war against U. S. ;
        8. Military will do what ordered (see Hitler, Mao, Stalin, etc.);
        9. Etc.

        We can stop this Tyranny.

        In the Indian struggle for independence, Gandhi wisely observed that: “victory against the British was a mathematical certainty. 100,000 English cannot control 350 million Indians who choose to disobey.”

        We The People number more than 315 million of which more than half are well prepared, patriotic, and ready, willing, and able to defend our country and our Constitution. Against us, at most, is a mere 545 mostly old, mostly out of shape, and mostly scared politicians. See
        “545 vs. 300,000,000 People – By Charlie Reese.”

        You who are in the 545: We The People demand better. We own the Constitution and the Rights described therein. You cannot take from us what is ours. That is theft.

        Law enforcers, military, government employees, you too are members of We The People. Act like it and uphold your Oaths.

      11. Hospital workers at several hospitals joined in studies, half took extra vitamin D the other half did not. The half that did take vitamin D were half as likely to get Coronavirus. That is a big statistic. You can take excessive amounts of vitamin D there is a balance between skin type and exposure to the sun plus what is available in your diet.

        It is said that a normal healthy diet provides less than 10% of the D you need. If you are light skinned and can get a couple hours of sun each week regularly and the UV index is greater than 8 you’ll like be fine. Where I live the UV index is still low and it’s too cold to spend quality time in the sun.

        The darker your skin pigmentation the less vitamin D your body can make from sun light. There’s reasons the Coronavirus death rate among African Americans is 4 times that of Americans of European descent, and the biggest correctable factor is likely Vitamin D.

        Ken above had some great remarks. Let me add, when we talk of survival we often speak of the rules of three’s.
        1. You can only survive three minutes without air.
        2. You can only survive three hours in freezing weather without shelter or specialized clothing.
        3. You can only survive three days without water.
        4. You can only survive three weeks without food.
        5. You can only survive three months without human contact.

        The last two are particularly an issue in the Coronavirus pandemic. Food is beginning to vanish from stores. Have a plan, keep your pantry full. The last one is a problem, I’m thinking some people who live alone will be found dead, killed by either Coronavirus, suicide, or even hunger. If anyone out there is alone, stay in contact with other people. Limit your exposure to bad news, the MSM lies most of the time anyway and just sell terror. My discussion above is a perfect example, I saw three reports on the news today alone, talking up the mysterious high death rate by Coronavirus among minorities, and not one mentioned the vitamin D link. All they sought to do was stir up racial conflict. With just a few words they could have begun to teach minorities how to survive, instead the MSM produced a fake news lesson in hate.

        For my part we are doing quite well. We have a family group who all are taking this seriously, avoiding the virus, and working together to share resources, information and each other’s support.

        The gardens are a work in progress, just had a frost alert last night, but I kept it all alive. For early plantings, I have a raised bed garden that is easily covered with a sheet of plastic. A stake in the middle tents it up and a 40 watt bulb on the middle of that stick generates enough heat to keep the frost out for the night.

        Another tip, in the basement I had years ago placed a big steel double door office supply cabinet to store foods typically sold in boxes or bags. It looks completely rodent proof and pretty insect resistant. I’ve used it to keep food safe for decades. In my efforts to keep my pantry full, I find I’m running out of space. It just dawned on me the other day to get my two big ice chests and use those for additional protected storage space for anything a rodent might desire and would be able to chew their way into.

        Stay safe people, keep your pantry full, stay on the safe sides of the rules of three’s.

      12. “So that would be enough “injection devices” to vaccinate every man, woman, and child in the entire country one and a half times.”

        Also, enough for Canada and Mexico.

      13. They will have to dangle a carrot of free cash or citizenship, or force people at gun point. I’ll pass, I’d rather take the Zyclon-B.

      14. In all likelihood LA will burn down. A drive around right now and the place looks like Calcutta. High density city life is proven not to be a healthy environment to survive, let alone raise a family in a healthy and safe environment. Yes the SHTF spectacularly in the next 2 years. The USA might not even exist as a country as the dollar collapses. The FED is out of options. The sheeple are still unaware. When they realize it will be too late. Cheyenne Mountain/COG is closed right now. They know this will end badly. The bunker ain’t opening for nobody they said.
