Earn an educational grant from CPP to help offset the cost of investing in proper vaccine storage equipment. Educate yourself on the new CDC guidelines published in 2012 to make sure you aren’t putting your vaccine stock at risk. CPP provides educational resources around proper vaccine storage that include a list of recommended units from other CPP members.
Through the implementation of enhanced temperature monitoring procedures, many of our member practices have discovered failures in their refrigerators and freezers that have previously gone undetected. This discovery has led them to purchase new equipment that complies with the new guidelines, develop new procedures for greater oversight and create contingency plans in case of equipment or process failure. As you can imagine, this can be a very expensive venture for your practice but it could be even more expensive if you were to lose thousands of dollars’ worth of vaccines. CPP will continue to support our member offices in protecting their vaccine investments.
