Delivering vaccines all over the world in this pandemic i.e., Covid-19 is a complex undertaking. It requires a chain of precisely coordinated events in temperature-controlled environments to store, manage, and transport these vaccines, life-saving products which can be only possible with a cold chain.
Importance of Cold Chain
The cold chain refers to the preservation of consistent temperatures for refrigerated vaccines from manufacture through delivery to health care facilities. During this process, stakeholders at each stop along the chain should monitor and maintain the vaccine’s optimal temperature range (ideally between 2°C and 8°C). The result of failing to monitor vaccine temperatures accurately even for short periods may result in:
- Waste of product and money
- Substandard immunologic responses
- Formula degradation
- Loss of potency
- Need to re-immunize patients
Distribution of the Covid-19 Vaccine
The COVID-19 vaccine distribution process leverages existing networks, processes, and partnerships to make vaccines available all over the world as quickly and safely as possible. Every week, as doses are released by companies for distribution, planes and trucks transport the vaccine to states and jurisdictions across the country.
This process of vaccine distribution includes:
