Vaccines for Children Program

The CDC’s Vaccines for Children program ensures that kids have a much better chance of getting their recommended vaccinations. The Vaccines available through the VFC Program are recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization and they help protect babies, young children, and adolescents from 16 diseases. To continue to help as many children as possible, the Vaccine Cold Chain is essential to keeping vaccines potent. Too much exposure to heat, cold, or light at any step in the cold chain can damage vaccines, resulting in loss of vaccine potency. Once lost, potency cannot be restored. One of the key elements for an effective cold chain is reliable temperature monitoring equipment.


Prevent Childhood Illness & Prevent Vaccine Losses

Think of your storage and monitoring equipment as an insurance policy to protect your patients from inadvertent administration of compromised vaccine, and your facility against costs of revaccination, replacement of expensive vaccines, and loss of patient confidence in your practice. For the best protection, your facility needs appropriate equipment that is set up correctly and maintained and repaired as needed.
"To fully ensure the safety of vaccines, the CDC recommends following equipment is recommended:

  • Stand-alone refrigerator(s) with enough space to accommodate your maximum inventory without crowding
  • Stand-alone freezer(s) with enough space to accommodate your maximum inventory without crowding
  • Digital data logger (DDL) with a current and valid Certificate of Calibration Testing (also known as a Report of Calibration) for each unit and at least one backup in case of a broken or malfunctioning device"
