Preventing freeze damage to vaccines

Author: World Health Organization

Abstract

To reduce the risk of freeze damage to vaccines, programmes should follow the best practices outlined in this aide-memoire, increase awareness about the issue, and implement clear operational guidelines and training for staff working at all levels of the cold chain. A study protocol is available from WHO for national programmes to assess the extent of the vaccine-freezing problem in their cold-chain systems and implement corrective measures if necessary.
