COVID-19 Vaccine Cold Storage
COVID -19 Vaccine Overview
The development of a COVID-19 vaccine by drug manufacturers has been welcomed across the globe. A key concern, however, is the safe distribution of the vaccines worldwide. This may cause some challenges for certain vaccines. Certain vaccines must be kept at an extremely cold temperature of -70C (-94F), much lower than the average temperature capabilities of an average freezer. The vaccine cannot be removed from this low temperature more than four times.
As a result of these concerns, manufactures have designed specific packaging using dry ice which can keep the vaccine cold enough, but only for a few weeks without ultra low temperature freezers. Due to the fact that most vaccines do not require such low-temperature storage, there is no widespread infrastructure of these freezers in place and local GPs and other smaller medical outlets are unlikely to have one. As vaccination programs are now being rolled out across the world, we take a look at the ultra low temperature solutions provided by Froilabo which are capable of safely storing the vaccine.
