It is not an overstatement to say that VVM is one of the most important recent innovations in the area of public health, providing health workers with advisable and dependable means of ensuring that the administered vaccine has not been damaged by heat. Amongst all the temperature monitoring devices and tools, VVM is the only one that has dramatically changed the course of vaccine management practices as well as shaped the future of the cold chain. Some critical approaches we have today in vaccine management have only been made possible with the help of VVM, and others have been made more effective.
For a quick review of VVM-induced vaccine management policies and VVM based vaccine management, refer to pages 201 and 245 in The Book of VVM (free download in PDF and ePUB3 formats from http://kartoglu.ch/vvm).
