• Storage & Handling
  • Temperature Monitoring & Controls

Why should I record the temperature of the room where the vaccine storage unit is located?

If the vaccine cold chain is broken, the ambient room temperature is useful information in helping determine how to handle the compromised vaccine. Do not remove the calibrated thermometer from the refrigerator or freezer to measure the room temperature. A standard household thermometer in the room is fine for this purpose.
