Important information on flu vaccine order and storage

19 April 2018

Important information on flu vaccine order and storage:

  • There’s no limit on the number of orders per month for Government funded flu vaccines;
  •  Do not crowd the vaccines by overfilling the shelves. Overstocking the refrigerator places all vaccines at risk;
  • Always store the vaccines in their original packaging from the manufacturer as this helps to protect them from temperature fluctuations and ultraviolet (UV) light. Do not take the vaccines out of packaging until administering to patients.
