TempArmour FAQs – How are Vaccines Organized in the TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator?

vaccine_organization_in_TempStable_Vaccine_RefrigeratorThis is a common question since many practitioners have not previously used a chest style refrigerator for vaccine storage.

However, the effective organization of vaccines is simpler than you may imagine using the baskets, dividers, trays, color-coded handles, tags, labels and other accessories included with each TempArmour™ Refrigerator.


Vaccines are stored in baskets in the TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator. There are three baskets across the top and two baskets on the bottom. Vaccines can be further divided into smaller trays if desired and plastic tags are included that can be clipped onto the baskets for identification.

Although the TempArmour fridge holds a large quantity of vaccines (e.g., up to 700 single dose syringes!), many customers find they only need to use the top baskets on a day-to-day basis. The bottom basket is often used when large quantities of vaccines are ordered, for example during flu season.

Note: As each user (health center / lab /pharmacy etc.) is unique with regard to the number and types of vaccines being stored, so is the exact layout/organization of the vaccines preferred by each.

Vaccine Placement Chart

A magnetic “Vaccine Placement Chart” is also provided that can be completed and affixed to the outside of the fridge for reference.

Customer feedback:
Our customers tell us that the TempArmour’s chest style configuration is an effective and easy to use vaccine refrigerator design and they are often surprised to find how much they prefer the chest style TempArmour fridge over upright models upon switching over!

Others have also commented that they appreciate no longer having to bend down to reach the lower shelves, as they had to do in the past with under-the counter fridges and other upright models.
