As 2020 comes to a close, many are optimistic as vaccines are approved and distributed. Vaccination is an effective public health measure to prevent and control a number of infectious diseases. But since vaccines are biological products and sensitive to hot and cold, they need to be maintained within a narrow range of temperatures, often referred to as the ‘cold-chain.’ This refers to the preservation of consistent temperatures for refrigerated vaccines from manufacture through delivery to health care facilities. In every step of the cold chain, vaccines require a cold temperature range for their storage, or they will lose their efficacy. As per the CDC, cold chain storage requirements for each COVID-19 vaccine will vary from refrigerated (2°C to 8°C), frozen (-15° to -25°C), ultra-cold (-60° to -80°C) temperatures.
