What We Know

At least one of the COVID-19 vaccines will require storage in ultra-low temperature conditions. Recent news has pointed to the fact that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine will require storage at -94°F. These vaccines will be shipped in dry ice containers, likely with a data logger to monitor the temperature along the way. Upon arrival, monitoring will be the responsibility of the jurisdiction or vaccination site. According to the CDC COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAM INTERIM PLAYBOOK, “Every vaccine storage unit/container must have a temperature monitoring device.” This is true for ultra-low storage as well as refrigerators and freezers. The CDC’s current recommendations are for the use of a Digital Data Logger (DDL) for this purpose, but that is not enough to ensure viability of COVID-19 vaccines and the safety of those receiving it.

Why a DDL Is Not Enough

Because of the nature of this technology, the use of a DDL to monitor vaccines is purely reactive. For example, if a temperature excursion takes place during off-hours, you won’t be made aware until the next morning, when the efficacy of your COVID-19 vaccines could already be in jeopardy. With a real-time solution, you will be remotely notified of any temperature excursion so that you can tend to your vaccines BEFORE they become inviable.
