AHA Releases COVID-19 Vaccine Storage Requirements Infographic

AHA Special Bulletin

Side-By-Side Comparison Details Storage Requirements for Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson Vaccines

The AHA is releasing a one-page infographic detailing the storage requirements for each of the three vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson) currently approved for emergency use. As the nation’s vaccination efforts continue to increase, this information will aid front-line health care workers who continue to step up and take on the responsibility of ensuring safe and effective vaccine administration to all individuals.
Given the increasing distribution of each of the three Food and Drugs Administration-authorized vaccines, it is vital that hospitals and health systems thoroughly understand how to meet each vaccine’s specific storage requirements, which is the best way to ensure all doses remain usable. This infographic provides critical storage information in an easy-to-reference document. Hospitals are encouraged to print, post and share as necessary, both internally and among community stakeholders.

NEXT STEPS

Please share this document with your pharmacy and communications staff, vaccination sites and any other individuals involved in your organizations’ vaccination efforts. In addition, please visit AHA’s website to review a host of resources on COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics, including materials on distribution and workforce issues.
AHA will continue to update its vaccine-related resources as additional COVID-19 vaccine candidates reach the market.
