Description

Vaccines are sensitive biological products that may become less effective or destroyed when exposed to temperatures outside the recommended range or inappropriate exposure to light. Cold Chain refers to the processes and procedures that maintain optimal temperature and light conditions during the transport, storage, and handling of vaccines. The purpose of the Alberta Vaccine Cold Chain Policy is to define vaccine cold chain practices in Alberta; and to define the roles and responsibilities of Alberta Health Services, community providers, Alberta Health, and pharmacies in implementing the Policy.
