Every aspect of our lives has been affected by the current global situation. While navigating through the daily challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is looking towards science for a solution in the form of a viable vaccine.
Vaccines, like other biologics, contain delicate biological molecules and can be irreversibly damaged by both heat and freezing temperatures. It is, therefore, crucial to carefully monitor vaccine temperature throughout its lifetime, from manufacture to administration.
According to the latest news, a COVID–19 vaccine could be ready as early as the end of this October. In preparation, government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have released guidelines for the storage and transportation of the vaccines, mandating specific conditions.
Whether you are involved in vaccine administration, distribution, or logistics, you understand the importance of accurate temperature control and monitoring when it comes to vaccine storage and handling. Ineffective temperature monitoring and recording can not only result in unnecessary delays and expenses, but in this case, loss of invaluable samples of novel COVID-19 vaccines that are likely to initially be available in limited quantities.
Cole–Parmer / Traceable® have a range of tools and solutions to ensure precise temperature monitoring that can help you ensure vaccine viability throughout its journey from the manufacturer, through distributors, to the end user.
In our webinar you will learn how to:
- Cope with the increased temperature monitoring challenges for COVID-19 vaccine storage and handling
- Ensure the safety of your vaccine product during storage and transportation
- Understand COVID-19 vaccine storage, handling requirements and recommendations from government agencies, such as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO)
You will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panel and receive focused responses that address your query.
