Vaccines are critical tools in maintaining the health of our communities. The logistics of delivering vaccines and verifying that they consistently maintain their recommended temperature has always been a difficult task. At times, vaccines were found being stored outside of the manufacturer’s recommended range. Prolonged temperature excursions can result in the vaccines becoming ineffective.
In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) responded and published its CDC Vaccine Storage & Handling Toolkit, establishing guidelines for vaccine storage and handling. We suggest checking with your state authorities for confirmation of when these requirements will be mandated at your facility. We have highlighted the primary requirements from this Toolkit and direct Mesa solutions for you below:
