Vaccine Storage Self-Audit

Has your practice carried out a vaccine storage self-audit recently? As per the National Vaccine Storage Guidelines – Strive for 5, immunisation service providers are required to do this at least once every 12 months. A checklist is available in the Guidelines and once completed it should be kept for future reference.

Your practice must have a designated person who has the primary responsibility for cold chain management and this person must ensure that your processes comply with the National Vaccine Storage Guidelines: Strive for 5, 3rd edition.
