Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit

The updated and redesigned Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit for health care providers and other interested health care professionals is now available on CDC’s website.

This helpful resource provides best practices related to vaccine storage and handling based on recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), product information from vaccine manufacturers, and scientific studies.

The toolkit’s new design allows health care providers to quickly and easily find the information they need to ensure the most up-to-date storage and handling procedures are followed.

Adjustment to CDC’s Recommended Fahrenheit Temperature Range for Refrigerated Vaccine Storage

The 2016 Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit reflects the recent adjustment in CDC’s guidance on the Fahrenheit temperature range for storing refrigerated vaccines. The new recommended Fahrenheit temperature range is 36° F – 46° F (previously 35° F – 46° F). The Celsius temperature range (2° C – 8° C) remains unchanged, as stated in all manufacturer package inserts for routinely recommended vaccines.

If you have any questions related to vaccine storage and handling, please email CDC at IZcoldchain.
