Vaccine Storage Unit Requirements
All vaccines supplied by the California VFC Program must be stored in separate refrigerator-only and freezer-only units. Use of household combination units (any compartment), dormitory style units, or household grade compact under-the-counter units (11 cubic feet in capacity and under) for the storage of VFC-supplied vaccines is not allowed at any time.
The California VFC Program does not endorse or recommend specific products. Providers may purchase any storage unit which meets California VFC Program requirements, outlined below.
Adherence to VFC’s storage and handing requirements is certified by participating providers as part of VFC’s annual recertification process. Compliance with VFC Program requirements is verified during routine and unannounced site visits
If you are unclear about storage unit requirements, contact a VFC Representative prior to making a purchase.
