Why is Specialised Ultra-Low Temperature Protective Equipment Needed at COVID-19 Vaccination Centres?

Of the three vaccines approved by the NHS for administration to the population of the UK, two of these, the Pfizer/BioNTech Vaccine as well as the more recently approved Moderna Vaccine, must be transported at ultra-low temperatures. This brings in a degree of danger to medical personnel that can be mitigated by using ultra-low temperature handling Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

What PPE is Needed for Handling These Two Vaccines?

The NHS Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) VH3 for ‘Unpacking and storage of frozen Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccines in ultra-low temperature freezers’ states that the PPE that is included in the ultra-low temperature handling PPE is as follows:

  • Mid-length gauntlets
  • Goggles or Face Shield
  • Apron
  • Disposable gloves to wear under the gauntlets
