Impact of power outages on vaccine storage
Filetype[PDF-106.64 KB]


Details:
  • Description:
    In areas where vaccine supplies are affected by temporary power outages, the guidance developed for providers during the 2003 Northeast Power Outage may be helpful:

    ■ Do not open freezers and refrigerators until power is restored.

    ■ Most refrigerated vaccines are relatively stable at room temperature for limited periods of time. The vaccines of most concern are MMR and Varivax, which are sensitive to elevated temperatures.

    ■ Monitor temperatures; don’t discard; don’t administer affected vaccines until you have discussed with public health authorities.
