CDC Releases the 2020 Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit

The CDC has recently released an updated version of its Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit.  

The 48-page toolkit is a comprehensive guide detailing best practices in vaccine storage and handling based on recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), product information from vaccine manufacturers, and scientific vaccine studies.  The toolkit has been updated for 2020 to clarify language and guidance including “beyond use date” (BUD), routine maintenance for vaccine storage units, and new/updated definitions have been added to the glossary.

The Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit and other helpful vaccine storage and handling resources can be found on the CDC website.
