Vaccine Storage and Handling

Before ordering any vaccines, each facility must receive a visit by a cold chain inspector. Staff will install a digital minimum-maximum refrigerator thermometer in every vaccine storage refrigeration unit and provide instructions on the storage and handling of vaccines. Once the visit is complete and before a vaccine order can be processed, the facility must fax a temperature log sheet with at least seven continuous days' temperature readings that shows the refrigerator is working within the acceptable range of +2° to +8° Celsius. You can fax temperature log sheets to 905-830-0578 or email to vaccineorderline@york.ca.

A temperature log sheet must accompany each subsequent vaccine order.

If vaccine refrigerator temperatures go outside the range of +2° to +8° Celsius, you must contact the Vaccine Inventory team immediately at 1-877-464-9675, ext. 74065 to speak to a cold chain inspector.
