You can’t turn on a television or pick up a newspaper without reading about some new strain of infectious bacteria or virus. People are turning to the government and healthcare professionals to protect their health more than ever before.
Vaccine storage and monitoring is on the forefront of these discussions. So much so that the Centers for Disease Control has produced a how-to manual, the Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit, to help develop best practices.
Can you spot the difference between good and bad vaccine?
“Excessive heat, cold, or light exposure can damage vaccines, resulting in reduced potency. Once potency is lost, it cannot be restored. Each time vaccines are exposed to improper conditions, potency is reduced further. Eventually, if the cold chain is not properly maintained, potency will be lost, and the vaccines become useless.” (CDC Vaccine Storage & Handling Toolkit)
