About the webinar – Watch Now!

As more children’s COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are being approved for various age groups, it’s more critical than ever to ensure your vaccines are safe and the equipment you use keeps the vaccines at required temperatures during storage and transport.

In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced that program participants offering vaccines to minors will need to meet the storage and transport requirements for both the Vaccines for Children (VFC) and COVID-19 Vaccine programs.

Whether you are a CDC program provider or not, the information presented in this webinar will provide you with invaluable information for keeping your vaccines safe. If you are a CDC provider, you will leave the webinar with an understanding of what you need to do to remain compliant. Our experts will walk you through these programs’ recommendations and how to avoid errors. The presentation will be followed by a brief Ask the Expert question and answer session.

What you will learn

  • How to effectively meet VFC vaccine program storage/transport requirements
  • How to effectively meet COVID-19 program vaccine storage/transport requirements
  • Where VFC and COVID-19 programs’ vaccine requirements differ
  • How to prevent costly mistakes in vaccine storage

In 2011, he was nominated to the AAP’s COPAM (Committee on Practice and Ambulatory Medicine) which was the AAP’s coordinating council for all vaccination issues. He worked to improve vaccine storage and handling in the general pediatric office by focusing on better equipment and processes.
