With vaccines getting frequently more attention and used by families, it is no secret how they can positively affect the health of the patients – not to mention children – in such a short amount of time. However, with an industry that is constantly innovating and shipping more vaccines every day, there must be a method to how these vaccines are moved, stored, and organized.
It seems like such a simple concept in theory: store the right vaccines in the correct area and so they can be found quickly, and so the wrong vaccine isn’t selected instead. But, this may be a bit more complicated than that. There is more to storing vaccines then simply just placing them in the right storage container or fridge.
The slightest error in organization can drastically reduce the potency of the vaccine and make it virtually useless. According to the Pan American Health Organization, there aren’t many issues more important than the proper storage and handling of vaccines. “Vaccines exposed to temperatures outside the recommended ranges can have reduced potency and protection. Storage and handling errors can cost thousands of dollars in wasted vaccine and revaccination,” the website says. It’s a concept that we tend not to think about. Vaccines on their own have saved so many lives that the idea of having to make sure that they are kept safe seems to get lost in the shuffle. Fortunately, Optical Inventory Solutions have poured all their resources and expertise into developing a superior solution.
