Author: Military Vaccine Agency
The success of military vaccine programs depends heavily on vaccinators understanding, following, and implementing proper vaccine storage and handling practices to ensure vaccine potency and stability. Military and civilian medical staff that administer immunizations in clinics, medical homes, and other facilities play a critical role in improving the health of Service members and beneficiaries. The purpose of this document is to assist immunization clinics and other healthcare facilities to properly store and handle vaccines.

Proper vaccine storage and handling practices play a very important role in protecting individuals and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Vaccine quality is the shared responsibility of everyone, from the time vaccine is manufactured until it is administered.
