The Cold Chain Solution for COVID-19 Vaccine

 

COVID-19 has affected our lives in both small and big ways. We all know how we had restructured our lives by adopting new social policies, be it wearing a mask, sanitizing our hands frequently, maintaining social proximity and much more. As a citizen, we are keen to look out for solutions which help us lessen the burden caused by the effects of the pandemic.

We now live in a world where physical presence is reduced in the farthest way possible. In such situations, every business is not only trying to design & implement new strategies but also lookout for opportunities to enhance and grow in the current market. One of the big opportunities among others is COVID-19 vaccination for the public.

India being the leading vaccine manufacturer will have its own advantages and challenges in terms of logistics, infrastructure, and the distribution network. Pharmaceutical companies have started shipping vaccines in special containers to maintain the required ultracold temperatures around the globe. More than 70% of the cost of vaccination can be attributed to its cold storage and transport. It is an expensive venture to build a supply chain that can move such a product under demanding conditions for it to remain effective and viable by the time it reaches its destination and winds up being used for immunizations of citizens.
