Prior to ordering any vaccines, each facility must have an office visit by a nurse on the Vaccine Preventable Diseases team, who will install a digital minimum-maximum refrigerator thermometer and provide instructions on the storage and handling of vaccines. Once the visit is complete, the office must fax in proof of at least three days' temperatures within the acceptable range of +2° to +8° C before an order can be processed. Each subsequent vaccine order must be accompanied by a temperature log sheet.
If vaccine refrigerator temperatures go outside the range of +2° to +8° C, the office must contact the Vaccine Preventable Diseases team immediately at 1-877-794-1880 and press 9 to speak with a cold chain nurse.
