New transport of Varicella vaccine guidance

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

CDC and the vaccine manufacturer do not recommend transporting varicella-containing vaccines. If varicella-containing vaccines must be transported, CDC recommends transport with a portable freezer unit that maintains the temperature between -58°F and +5°F (-50°C and -15°C). Portable freezers may be available for rent in some places.

Below are the complete Special Instructions for Transport.
