Monitoring Cold Chain Temperature During a Pandemic with InTemp
Cold Chain monitoring has always been a very complex process, but the addition of monitoring of vaccines developed in response to the world-wide pandemic presents one of the greatest challenges ever faced by global supply chain contributors.
Onset is laser-focused on fully understanding COVID-19 vaccine monitoring requirements and fine-tuning our monitoring solutions accordingly so that our customers can meet this unprecedented challenge head-on and with ease.
Here’s the latest critical information about COVID-19 vaccine distribution and storage:
The first vaccine approved for use needs to be shipped and stored in dry ice conditions (-80°C to -65°C)
The second vaccine requires frozen temperatures for transportation and storage
All vaccines must be in a refrigerated state before being administered to the patient
There’s an extreme shortage of dry ice storage facilities, especially in under-privileged nations
Most vaccines need to be shipped directly to patient distribution facilities and used within a limited time frame
Some regional facilities have been set up for temporary dry ice storage and redistribution
The CDC and other global regulatory bodies have already released preliminary guidelines for these vaccines
