Guidance

Proper vaccine storage and handling practices play a very important role in protecting individuals and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccine potency is the shared responsibility of everyone, from the time vaccine is manufactured until it is administered.

Both the Guidelines for Compliance (PDF) l (DOC) and Refrigerator Requirements outline the MDPH policies regarding storage and handling. For a general review of CDC guidance on storage and handling, see this CDC At-A-Glance reference guide however  be aware that some MDPH policies and requirements are different than CDC guidance, such as refrigerator and data logger requirements.
