On October 22-24, 2016, TempArmour™ Refrigeration traveled to San Francisco, California to take part in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) 2016 National Conference & Exhibition.
To demonstrate the incredible hold-over time of the TempArmour™ Vaccine Refrigerator, it was unplugged on Tuesday, October 18th and shipped to the AAP Conference site. When the fridge was opened at the tradeshow three days later on Saturday, October 22nd, the temperature was 5.1°C (41.2°F). On Monday, October 24th, when we were ready to pack up again, the temperature remained at 5.6°C (42.1°F), well below the upper limit of 8°C (46°F). The TempArmour™ refrigerator was still safely within temperature range to keep vaccines protected after 6 days without being plugged in!
August is National Immunization Awareness Month and there are lots of resources available to help get the message out about the importance of immunization for both adults and children!
The National Public Health Information Coalition collaborated with the CDC to put together an organized toolkit of promotional resources including vaccine information, graphics, sample news releases, and promotional messages. There is even a suggested schedule of weekly themes that can be used to get your message out.
