Missouri VFC Updates

Beginning January 1, 2018, CDC will require all VFC providers storing vaccine to use a continuous temperature monitoring device with an active temperature display and current and valid certificate of calibration testing. The device must have continuous monitoring and recording capabilities where the data can be routinely downloaded. Additional Missouri Requirements for the continuous temperature monitoring device include:

  • A detachable, buffered probe

  • Alarm for out of range temperatures

  • Current, minimum, and maximum temperatures

  • Digital temp display that can be read on the outside of the storage unit

  • Low battery indicator

  • Accuracy of +/- 1 degree F

  • Memory storage of at least 4,000 readings

  • User programmable logging interval (or reading rate and set to record every four hours)

  • Readings from the data logger must be downloaded once per month

Furthermore, the temperature must be checked manually and logged twice a day and that log must be submitted to the VFC program on the first day of every month.

TEMPERATURE RANGE HAS ALSO CHANGED FOR STORING VACCINES:

The new temperature range is 36-46 Degrees F

If you have any questions please reach out to the VFC program at 800-219-3224
