Medical Fridge Servicing

Temperature is a key factor in the efficacy of vaccines. Many refrigerators used to store vaccines are not operating to the correct temperature.

JPen Medical finds at least 10% of all vaccine fridges inspected per year are not cooling to recommended temperatures. Relatively easy but important steps that can be taken to prevent this. 

Top Tips

  • Ideal storage temperature for vaccines should range between 2-8°C.  Exposure to temperatures outside the recommended range can lead to reduced protection against infectious disease
  • Daily temperature checks should be carried out by a designated person. Report out-of-range temperature immediately
  • Rotate vaccines with latest expiration dates around the refrigerator so that vaccine packs are used well within expiry dates. Always store vaccines in original boxes/packaging, and avoid over-filling the refrigerator with too many packages
  • Ensure plenty of ventilation around the sides and rear of the refrigerator, to help heat exchange units and radiator pipes extrude warm air
  • Annual cleaning is recommended to remove dust and ensure optimum working order
  • Annual refrigerator servicing to maintain and protect valuable equipment assets, including annual refrigerator thermometer calibration
