The Department of Defense announced on Tuesday it had a contract with ApiJect Systems America for $ 138 million to create a ready-made supply chain for pre-filled syringes: when the COVID-19 vaccine is available, syringes should be ready.
Under the contract, a subsidiary of ApiJect RAPID USA Inc. will act as part of the Project Jumpstart initiative to create a high-speed supply chain of pre-filled syringes using blown, filled and densified plastic technology, which will enable the production of medical-grade injection devices. The contract will be completed by October 2020.
ApiJect announced Tuesday that it also plans to increase syringe production in 2021, producing 330 million pre-filled BFS syringes per month by the end of the year.
“RAPID USA is led by our diverse team of experienced engineers, pharmaceutical technology experts and management. Our team has made tremendous efforts to ensure that all Americans can receive critical injections when developing and testing drugs, ”says ApiJect Systems America CEO.
Concluding a contract for the early production of vaccine syringes is exceptionally good news, but two things confuse conspiracy theorists. First, what does the Pentagon have to do with vaccines? It is clear when this or that Ministry of Defense enters into a contract with a pharmaceutical company that supplies the military with disposable syringes with promedol or antibiotic there, but what does the Pentagon have to do with vaccines?
It is possible, of course, that the Pentagon wants to vaccinate the military first, but there we are talking about an order for almost one and a half hundred million dollars. It is unlikely that a disposable syringe costs 10 bucks, rather about a dollar, so it comes to vaccinating every US military ten times. It’s a bit much even for people who are very protective of their health.
The second thing that bothers everyone is the entry on the company’s official website:
Regardless of whether the health officials are conducting the planned vaccination program or the pandemic emergency response campaign, they can make better decisions if they know when and where each injection occurs. With an additional RFID / NFC tag on each syringe filled with BFS, ApiJect will make this possible.
Before making an injection, a healthcare professional will be able to launch a free mobile application and “touch” a pre-filled syringe with his phone, capturing a unique NFC tag serial number, GPS location, date / time. The application will then upload the data to a government-selected cloud database.
Here is such an interesting company, this ApiJect, which prepares not just vaccination syringes, but also RFID syringes. Judging by the description of the company, the chip with the identifier is located on the syringe itself, but who knows and who checks it? More likely, ApiJect received an order for syringes with a miracle vaccine from Bill Gates and in this case they will begin to distribute it around the month of October.
