Health Department leases former Gordmans for vaccination site

Posted online

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department penned a temporary lease to operate a COVID-19 vaccination clinic out of a former Gordmans department store.

The governmental agency’s lease covers the remainder of the year at the 1425 E. Battlefield Road building, said Health Department spokesperson Aaron Schekorra. The property is owned by Morris Corners LLC, according to Greene County assessor records.

The Health Department is opening a vaccine clinic at the building starting Oct. 11, according to a news release. Officials cited demand for vaccines prompted by the approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech booster shot and the pending approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine for children 5-11 years old.

The booster shots are available to people who are six months past their second vaccine dose and meet certain criteria: either 65 years and older, residents in long-term care settings, people aged 18-64 who have underlying medical conditions or those 18-64 who are at increased risk because of their profession.

The Health Department estimates 23,000 Greene County children will become eligible after approval of the shot for that age range. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is scheduled to meet later this month to evaluate the safety of the vaccine for children, according to the release.

Greene County hit the 50% vaccination mark last month among the eligible population, according to a separate news release.

The Health Department's new vaccine clinic will operate in a 46,000-square-foot building, according to a listing of the Morris Corners property by Matthews Real Estate Investment Services. The listing indicates Gordmans paid nearly $31,000 per month for the building lease.

Gordmans closed the store last year.

WHY would the county health dept need a “vaccination” site? We have clinics, hospitals and pharmacists pushing this poison all over the county? Something smells evil here? But it has for almost 2 years now. People being FORCED out of their jobs and economy over a 99.87% SURVIVAL rate and an avg age of death higher than our normal longevity? With an EXPERIMENTAL non vaccine? Of course is perfectly normal to censor doctors, pharmacists and scientists during a “pandemic”? Perhaps this is for all the illegals and Afghanistan refugees? Oh wait, they are NOT being forced out of the economy and their careers. They don’t even have to be TESTED! Here is what is coming. Flu season is upon us. Hospitals will be overran due to their own policy. They will say it is the “unvaccinated”. It is not. They have been lying. www.pojectveritas.com Enjoy! They are bringing in a new test as the PCR test that was used to dupe the American public and perpetuate this hoax of a pandemic has been withdrawn by the CDC and FDA. Why? It Doesn’t work!, At 40 cycles it would identify a cold you had 5 years ago as COVID! The CDC has reduced the overall death count by HALF! Why? Because they were counting darn near every death as a COVID death! $$. So again, WHY does the county health department need to spend MORE taxpayer dollars on a “vaccination” facility? Nobody is gonna get this shot and we will NEVER be forced to get it! By the way, the current “vaccine” has NOT been approved by the FDA. READ IT!

Wake up America Trust no one, question everything,, These people didn’t steal power because they care about us.
