Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs
What is a Qualified Container and Packout (for vaccines)?
A Qualified Container and Packout is defined in CDC’s Vaccine Storage and Handling Toolkit as:
A type of container and supplies specifically designed for use when packing vaccines for transport. They are passive containers that do not require a power source and are “qualified” through laboratory testing under controlled conditions to ensure they achieve and maintain desired temperatures for a set amount of time.
The advantage of using a Qualified Container and Packout is that you can be confident that the vaccine carrier will stay within the correct temperature range under the conditions that it was tested for. However, be aware that not all "Qualified Containers and Packouts" perform equally well; "Qualified Container and Packout" only means that the carrier has been tested to determine the number of hours that the temperature will stay in range - however the time varies widely between brands from several hours to several days. For example, the TempArmour Vaccine Carrier was shown under laboratory testing that it will stay in temperature range for 3 days under a specific set of conditions.
Also check to see what type of packs are used in the Qualified Container and Packout; Phase Change Material (PCM) packs are preferred (and in many cases required over ice packs) - check with your Vaccine Program Management for requirements specific to your location).
