  • Description:
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit (referred to throughout this document as “the toolkit”) brings together best practices from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) General Best Practice Guidelines for Immunization,* product information from vaccine manufacturers, and scientific studies Implementing these best practices and recommendations will help protect your patients, safeguard your vaccine supply, and avoid the unnecessary costs of revaccination and replacing expensive vaccines.

    Proper vaccine storage and handling has been an important factor in preventing and eradicating many common vaccine-preventable diseases Yet, each year, storage and handling errors result in revaccination of many patients and significant financial loss due to wasted vaccines Failure to store and handle vaccines properly can reduce vaccine potency, resulting in inadequate immune responses in patients and poor protection against disease Patients can lose confidence in vaccines and providers if they have to be revaccinated because the vaccines they received may have been compromised.
