Rumors are spreading that the Verichip is going to be inserted into the swine flu vaccine. This could be true or it could be that the microchips will be inserted at another time....either after a person has died or if they enter a hospital...to trace and track them. It is interesting that New Jersey recently bought the Veritrace System. One of it's uses is slated for keeping track of dead bodies. They experimented with this system right after Hurricane Katrina. The article below explains it in more detail
It is also interesting that New Jersey is one of the first states to make flu vaccines mandatory for preschool and daycare children. Will this Veritrace system be used after or during a pandemic....and or for just introducing microchips into the population through mandatory vaccines?
Verichip Corporation Announces Sales of Veritrace System to Two New Jersey Counties
DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(Business Wire)--
VeriChip Corporation (NASDAQ:CHIP) ("VeriChip"), a provider of radio frequency
identification (RFID) systems for healthcare and patient-related needs,
announced today that it has sold the VeriTrace system for disaster relief and
emergency management needs to Atlantic and Mercer counties in New Jersey.
Marc Poulshock, Vice President of VeriChip`s Implantable and Emergency
Management divisions, said, "These recent orders reflect the continued demand
for the VeriTrace system by emergency management personnel and medical examiners
throughout the country. Since the federal government continues to support the
necessity to be prepared for potential natural catastrophes or acts of
terrorism, we will maintain our ongoing discussions with these organizations in
the U.S. and internationally."
The VeriTrace system was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina where it
proved helpful in identifying, tracking and accounting for the remains of
victims from the hurricane. VeriTrace was used by the Federal Disaster Mortuary
Operational Response Team (DMORT) during Hurricane Katrina recovery operations.
VeriTrace is designed to assist state and federal agencies in the management of
emergency situations and disaster recovery using implantable RFID technology.
The VeriTrace system includes a unique implantable RFID microchip, a VeriTrace
Bluetooth handheld reader, a customized Ricoh 500SE Digital Camera capable of
receiving both RFID scanned data and GPS data wirelessly, and a Web-enabled
database for gathering and storing information and images captured during
emergency response operations. This database ensures the precise collection,
storage and inventory of all data and images related to remains and the
associated evidentiary items. This also allows the recreation of an accurate and
complete reconstruction of a disaster setting, crime scene or similar setting
where recreation is necessary.
