The Logistical Challenges of Transporting the Vaccine

Ever considered the logistical challenges facing the pharmaceutical companies who need to get the vaccine around the globe?

The UK has secured 40 million doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, which must be stored at -70C to ensure optimum efficacy, but how do you ensure the safe transportation of the one thing that could put an end to the global pandemic?

Firstly, watertight exporting must take place. Secondly and as you would have guessed, in the wake of Brexit, planning has been critical to ensure no delays in transit.

As mentioned, another challenge is that the temperature for storage is -70C, which needs to be maintained throughout transit. Hygiene is also crucial; the vaccines must be protected from spills that could contaminate and spoil the vials.
