Vaccine Storage

About your vaccines and medications requiring refrigeration – what you must know about storage and delivery

Vaccine storage requires constant maintenance of the ‘cold chain’ to ensure that a potent vaccine is administered to the patient. The ‘cold chain’ is the system of transporting and storing vaccines within the safe temperature range of between 2ºC to 8ºC.
Note: Most vaccines are damaged at 0º C.

We observe the national guidelines - but storage of your personal refrigerated vaccines and medications at practice is at your own risk.

Our Practice Policy: Storage of patient-owned vaccines and medications

 

  • Our practices – We take every possible precaution and strictly follow the National Vaccine Storage Guidelines ‘Strive for 5’.
    However,  due to unforeseen circumstances a breach in Cold Chain Management may occur e.g. a power outage.  In these circumstances, we are unable to guarantee the viability of vaccines or medications stored in our vaccine fridges.

  • By choosing to store vaccines in the practice vaccine fridges, the patient must accept they are liable for all costs associated with any loss, should unforeseen circumstances occur.

  • The practice accepts no responsibility for the patient’s personal storage and method of transport/delivery of their vaccines or medications, prior to these being received at the practice.

  • In accordance with storage guidelines and this policy, our nurses and doctors have the right to refuse administration of any vaccines or medications believed to have breached the National Vaccine Storage Guidelines ‘Strive for 5’.
