Our practice maintains the potency of vaccines.
As vaccines are delicate biological substances, they can become less effective or destroyed if they are not kept within an optimal temperature range or are exposed to direct ultraviolet (UV) light. You must therefore maintain the potency of your vaccines in order to ensure they are effective in improving immunity against disease.
A cold chain is a series of temperature-controlled storage and distribution activities (also called a ‘supply chain’). An unbroken cold chain is a supply chain that never exceeds or drops below a given temperature range. A cold chain helps to maintain the shelf life and potency of vaccines.
