Are Doctors Improperly Storing Vaccines? ~ ABC News

By KIM CAROLLO (@kimcarollo)
June 6, 2012


Inspectors visited the offices of 45 providers in five states who offered free immunizations as part of the government's Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program. Nationwide, about 44,000 offices and clinics participate in the program. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services pay for the vaccines, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention distribute them.

The investigation found that 76 percent of the providers stored the vaccines at temperatures that were either too hot or too cold. They also found that 13 providers stored expired vaccines along with nonexpired vaccines. In addition, they said they found that none of the providers properly managed the vaccines according to VFC program requirements.

"As a result, the 20,252 VFC vaccine doses that we observed during site visits may not provide children with maximum protection against preventable diseases and may be vulnerable to fraud, waste and abuse," according to the report. "These doses were worth approximately $800,000."

The storage problem could potentially lead to less effective vaccines, but doesn't pose a safety risk, the HHS OIG said.

Victim of ‘Miami Zombie’ attack graduated from Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School ~ NYDailynews.com

Victim of ‘Miami Zombie’ attack graduated from Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School

The homeless drifter whose face was largely eaten by the “Miami Zombie” was once a brainy 1964 graduate of New York’s prestigious Stuyvesant High School.

Ronald Poppo, 65, was in the Latin Club and worked in the guidance office at Stuyvesant before his life hit the skids, his yearbook shows.

It was a long road from being one of the city’s smartest and most driven kids to lounging under a Florida bridge Saturday, when a maniac attacked him at random in one of the most gruesome crimes on record.

Poppo’s life unraveled early. He was already homeless in early 1976, when he was treated in Miami for a gunshot wound and gave his address as a Salvation Army shelter.


“The sad reality is there are many brilliant people who become schizophrenic and end up on the streets,” said a Stuyvesant classmate, Felix Freshwater, who became a pioneering plastic surgeon in Miami.

Such a horrible story.

Proof on the 911 tapes - Zimmerman remained in pursuit, and was not heading back to his truck?



911 dispatcher:

He’s running? Which way is he running?


Down toward the other entrance of the neighborhood. [2:14]

911 dispatcher:

OK, which entrance is that he’s headed towards?


The back entrance.

[It sounds like Zimmerman says under his breath, ‘F-ing coons’ at 2:22]


911 dispatcher:

Are you following him? [2:24]


Yeah. [2:25]

911 dispatcher:


We don’t need you to do that. [2:26]


OK. [2:28]

911 dispatcher:

Alright, sir, what is your name? [2:34]


George. He ran.

911 dispatcher:

Alright, George, what’s your last name?



911 dispatcher:

What’s the phone number you’re calling from?



911 dispatcher:

Alright, George, we do have them on the way. Do you want to meet with the officer when they get out there?



911 dispatcher:

Alright, where are you going to meet with them at?


Um, if they come in through the gate, tell them to go straight past the clubhouse and, uh, straight past the clubhouse and make a left and then go past the mailboxes you’ll see my truck. [3:10]

911 dispatcher:

Alright, what address are you parked in front of? [3:21]


Um, I don’t know. It’s a cut-through so I don’t know the address. [3:25]

... (partially redacted)

OK, do you just want to meet with them at the mailboxes then? [3:42]


Yeah, that’s fine. [3:43]

911 dispatcher:

Alright, George, I’ll let them know you’ll meet them at ... (interrupted by Zimmerman)


Could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at? [3:49]

911 dispatcher:

OK, that’s no problem.

If Zimmerman was heading back to his truck, stopping pursuit of Trayvon Martin, why did he refuse to say he'd meet officers near said truck?

Pardon me if this topic has been discussed. I haven't followed the conversation on Zimmerman here, very closely.

Trayvon's Brother: "He Was Going To Be Someone." Video

... Trayvon's brother, Jahvaris Fulton, in an interview on CNN, reminds us of exactly what kind of kid his brother was. He shared his brother's aspiration saying that Trayvon was "set on going to school." Jahvaris then went on to say that his brother was "smart" and in "honors classes."

Jahvaris then went on to talk about Zimmerman's allegations of Trayvon saying:

"It didn't sound like my brother at all. My brother attacked him and did all this stuff... it doesn’t sound like him at all. He wasn't confrontational or violent."
