    I'm working now on a much more complicated effort involving Walgreens and Merck (in addition to all of the above) to immunize a lot of poor people against shingles.

    It's harder to do because the vaccine must be kept at -2 degrees F at all times and requires specialized freezers. Also, it costs $225 a pop with copays as high as $175. A wonderful man from Merck, and another from Walgreens, are helping me to figure out how to do this without sending our seniors into penury.

    I'm hoping I can get it done by January. So as I move forward, I will continue to diary it.

    And even though it all went wrong I'll stand before the Lord of Song with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah! -Leonard Cohen .................@laurenreichelt
