Cold Chain Inspections

refrigeration unitChatham-Kent Public Health nurses inspect facilities such as doctor’s offices to ensure they are compliant with cold chain requirements.

They provide education, training, and recommendations to maintain the cold chain. The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care mandates the Cold Chain Program. Proper vaccine storage and handling ensures safe and effective vaccines are delivered to the public.

The term “cold chain” refers to maintaining vaccines within the required range of 2° to 8°C at all times during handling, storage, and transport. Breaks in the cold chain can result in reduced vaccine effectiveness, which can mean lack of protection for the person receiving the vaccine.

When the vaccine storage refrigerator varies above or below these temperatures, this is a cold chain failure and the health unit must be notified immediately at 519.355.1071 ext. 5900.
