All staff who accept packages should know the importance of immediately storing vaccine, and know who your offices Vaccine Coordinator is.
When you receive a shipment from McKesson, immediately check theÂ 3M MonitorMark Time Temperature Indicator, TransTracker C FREEZEmarker IndicatorÂ and/orÂ ColdMark Freeze Indicator. These will show if the vaccine has maintained proper temperature during shipment.

Private, VFC, and VFAAR vaccine can’t be used interchangeably – and we’ll verify this during our quality assurance visits to your site.
Clearly label VFC and VFAAR vaccine to distinguish it from privately-purchased vaccine. When you receive vaccine shipments, label them as you unpack and store them. You can request VFC and VFAAR stickers at no cost from us.
