How do I prepare my facility for COVID-19 vaccine distribution?
In alignment with guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), COVID-19 vaccine providers should incorporate the following into their vaccination preparation plan:

Post COVID-19 vaccine signs on exterior doors or entrances to let customers know your facility is a trusted community vaccination provider.

Ensure social distancing best practices are continually encouraged with floor markers, marking tape, signage, and posters.

Set up a one-way vaccination site flow with a-frame signs, traffic cones, or barricades to direct foot traffic and ensure physical distancing between patients.

Let vaccine recipients know they must wear a mask with posters and signage that have clear, informative messaging.

Encourage good hygiene with infographic posters and signage that reminds vaccine recipients to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer.

Stock up on bandages, latex gloves, and sharps containers for safe vaccine administration and disposal.

Use plexiglass barriers between administration areas and regularly sanitize them.

Vaccine Storage & Handling
In order to ensure efficacy and maximum shelf life, COVID-19 vaccine products must be stored and handled in refrigerated temperatures between 36°F and 46°F, frozen temperatures of -13°F to -5°F, and ultra-cold temperatures of -112°F to -76°F in the freezer or within the dry ice thermal shipper in which the products are provided.

All vaccine storage units must have their own temperature monitoring devices. The CDC recommends the use of digital data loggers (DDLs) with air-probes or a probe specifically designed for ultra-cold temperatures.

Post “DO NOT UNPLUG" warning signs and labels at outlets and on storage units to alert staff to avoid unplugging units. Label fuses and circuit breakers to alert people not to turn off power to a storage unit.

Cryogenic personal protective equipment (PPE) such as goggles, face shields, gloves, aprons, and gaiters must be worn when handling dry ice and vaccine products that have been packed in dry ice.

Vaccine Disposal
Most general vaccination disposal guidelines can be applied to the COVID-19 vaccine; however, contact your state’s immunization program or the vaccine manufacturer for COVID-19 vaccine-specific information.

Unused vaccine and diluent doses, unopened and expired vials, and potentially compromised vaccine may be returned for credit, even if they must be discarded.

Open and broken vials and syringes, activated manufacturer-filled syringes, and vaccine pre-drawn by providers cannot be returned and must be discarded in alignment with state requirements.

Most empty vaccine vials are not considered to be hazardous or pharmaceutical waste and do not require disposal in a biomedical waste container.
