2018 Vaccine Storage Requirements for All VFC Providers

Please be aware that the CDC has changed vaccine storage requirements for all VFC providers beginning in 2018.  The changes center around being able to provide continuous and reliable temperature monitoring with data loggers while vaccines are stored in their permanent locations (refrigerators and freezers in the office) and while in temporary storage (transportation containers or coolers for vaccination clinics).

Please see the AAP News article by Dr. Robin Warner for more details.
