Is it okay to use one temperature monitoring device (TMD) to monitor two units in our office by rotating its placement?

No. CDC recommends that every vaccine storage unit must have its own TMD. An accurate temperature history that reflects actual vaccine temperatures is critical for protecting your vaccines. It is also recommended to have at least one backup TMD on site in case a primary device breaks or malfunctions.
