Aimed at human vaccines but relevant to animal vaccines too, this report explores whether vaccines which are sensitive both to excessive heat and excessive cold are transported and stored correctly. The document incorporates detailed information on vaccine management related issues and especially concerns on exposure of freeze sensitive
vaccines to freezing temperatures or incorrect refrigeration and storage. Vaccine vial monitor information has also been expanded to explain how different categories apply to different types of vaccines. The document also discusses the future of the cold chain in reducing the dependency by exploiting the stability of each vaccine to the greatest possible extent.
