COVID Vaccine Distribution Challenges
As much as the COVID-19 vaccines present a real opportunity to mitigate the immense disruption to our lives that the disease has caused, real challenges remain before the vaccine can safely and efficiently be administered to the people. The sheer number of doses is nothing like the distribution chain has ever prepared for before. Additionally, the vaccines (especially Pfizer’s) have to be stored at very low temperatures in freezers that have been IQ/OQ/PQ validated compliant with 21 C.F.R. Part 11 regulations.
As many new freezers will need to be validated in the coming weeks and months, Transcat can help by providing validation services and rental equipment for this effort.
