Do you know anything about a medical freezer or any of the other types of important storage devices used by pharmacies and more? If not, that is okay as this is obviously a very niche type of discussion. However, it is valuable to understand how important a medical freezer is and the items stored within which can contain vaccines!
Large-scale vaccine production became possible in the late 1940s. At the time, recommended vaccines included Smallpox, Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis which is also known as the whooping cough. These vaccines are saving lives every single year and fighting off dangerous diseases. Therefore, the true value of a high-quality medical freezer cannot be overstated when it is used to keep vaccines at the right temperatures!
Vaccines have been saving lives for over 300 years. In 1796, Edward Jenner developed the arm-to-arm inoculation against sm
Since the invention of the first “arm-to-arm” inoculations in the late 18th century, vaccines have saved millions of lives, with over 2 million unnecessary deaths prevented last year alone. Recent advances in technology have also meant that these vaccines are increasingly available to people who need them across the globe. However, some remote reaches of the globe (and, indeed, the United States) have unreliable electricity. In the event of a natural disaster, a scientific refrigerator or lab freezer may experience a power outage at the exact moment that people are in desperate need of medical care. In those instances, here are the steps you should take to prevent vaccine spoilage.
First, and most importantly, do not open the door.
