Covid-19 is plateauing, and a big part of the reason seems to be the release of multiple vaccines to help curb the virus. Proper storage of the vaccines are essential in their success. The CDC has released the basics for storage for the top 2 vaccines, Pfizer and Moderna. Here are the basics. Download these PDFs for more information.

Pfizer

The Pfizer Vaccine

The Basics

  • Store vaccine in an ultra-cold freezer, thermal shipping container, or refrigerator. See guidance below for each storage unit.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for returning the thermal shipping container.
  • Each thermal shipping container holds up to 5 trays of vaccine. Each tray contains 195 multidose vials (975 doses).
  • Use vaccine vials stored in the refrigerator before removing vials from frozen storage.
