Meet all CDC Guidelines
End to end Temperature Management for Vaccine for Children
These solutions ensure that people including children can feel safe about their vaccination.
Vaccine Monitoring Solutions for Vaccine for Children
Vaccines must be held at certain temperatures. Hep A, DTap and most other vaccines must be stored between 36-46º F (or 2-8ºC). MMR and Varicella must be stored below 5º F (or -15ºC). If these vaccines are not stored at the right temperature they will look the same but they will not be as effective. A compromised vaccine can be worse than no vaccine at all. Improperly stored vaccines can put a patient’s health at risk.
Recently, the Office of Inspector General implemented a test on storage facilities in 45 of the largest VFC providers. They put digital data loggers in those facilities and over the course of 2 weeks they found that 76% of all the facilities, even the ones that thought they were doing a good job, saw temperatures out of range for at least 5 hours per day. That proved that data logger information is far better then the common practice of manually logging temperatures twice per day.Try a Pilot
State health departments
State health departments across the US are required to manage vaccine inventory levels, the storage conditions and a patient based vaccine directory. How do they insure that CDC guidance on storage and handling of vaccines is followed across a statewide network of independent doctors, clinics and hospitals? In Tennessee, and many other states across the US, the Fridge-tag 2 & 2L has been chosen for the following reasons:
- The calibration certificate is valid for 2 – 3 years (depending upon the model) lowering operational costs
- Audible and visual alarms insure the providers are alerted if there is an alarm
- Reports are easy to retrieve and simple to understand
