Updated: Feb 19
Control of the cold chain is a critical factor for administering the COVID 19's vaccination campaign. In health environments such as Clinics and Hospitals, the temperature control of vaccines is moderately controlled.

How to transport massively and safely the COVID 19 Vaccines to the vaccination points without affecting the cold chain?
How to ensure the cold chain without refrigeration at the vaccination points considering a daily vaccination campaign of 14 hours or more?
How to get a complete state of COVID 19 vaccines in real-time, considering the outdoor exposure, location, temperature, humidity, thermal bag, or cooler?
How to obtain a record and ensure COVID 19 vaccines' correct temperature for each dozes at the vaccination' field?
These challenges could affect the Covid 19 vaccination campaign's success if the Health Authorities don't have adequate logistics, distribution, and cold chain management. In our previous article, you can also explore the three critical factors for the Covid 19 vaccination campaign's success.
We intend to help Health Authorities employ the
