The Service was looking for a simple solution to monitor the vaccine temperature in the vaccine transportation carriers that the teams use to take the vaccines to the schools on a daily basis.
It is imperative that vaccines remain between 2°C and 8°C in order to maintain the efficacy and product license.
Teams use electric Labcold Portable Vaccine Carriers and pharmaceutical-grade vaccine carriers. They wanted a visual tool that was cost-effective that they would be able to review at the end of the vaccination session that would tell them if the temperature increased above 8°C, and if the temperature went above 25°C, for how long that had occurred.
