Implement Guardrails to Prevent COVID-19 Vaccine Errors
You play a critical role in preventing COVID-19 vaccine errors...as more pharmacies administer COVID-19 vaccines.
Ensure proper storage. Cold-chain errors have led to hundreds of wasted doses. Verify storage requirements in the most recent product monograph before putting vaccine stock away.
Use designated containers or shelves in the fridge or freezer...or even separate storage units...and encourage staff to read labels closely to verify they have selected the correct vaccine.
