Video: Keys to Storing and Handling Your Vaccine Supply
Video: Keys to Storing and Handling Your Vaccine Supply
Released in June 2014, this CDC video (45 min) highlights storage and handling recommendations and best practices to help you protect your patients. Vaccines are among the most powerful tools we have to protect your patients' and the public's health. Proper storage and handling help ensure vaccine potency and safety. Vaccines are fragile, and storage and handling errors are costly. CME credit available.
