Vaccine storage & packaging are some of the most intricate processes. There is a lot that goes into properly storing and handling vaccines. This is due to the fact viruses and bacteria from which the vaccines are produced usually only remain in the recipient's body for a limited amount of time, which means that it is important to store the items safely and securely. Otherwise, the viruses can be released into the environment, potentially making those who received the vaccinations sick or can cause serious consequences to others. To do this, vaccines are stored in high quality, climate-controlled environments in lockers or in climate-controlled, environmental-friendly plastic cases.
