25th March 2021 – CoolMed, specialists in medical refrigeration, have today strengthened their product offering with the launch of the CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier

The carrier is designed to enable healthcare professionals to easily transport vaccines, solving the problem of cold chain compliance on the move and addressing the unique challenges of Covid vaccine distribution. 

Since the start of the Covid pandemic, CoolMed have supplied the NHS with over 500 medical refrigerators in order to safeguard their Covid vaccine stocks. The launch of the CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier will further allow CoolMed to help with the vaccine roll-out by providing the last-mile solution for vaccine distribution. 

The CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier has an inside temperature range of +2°C to +8°C and can be set at any required temperature within this range. The digital temperature display allows practitioners to easily record and monitor the temperature within the carrier, ensuring vaccines are maintained within the cold chain temperature range during transit.

The lightweight 12L transportable carrier uses a safe, gas free Peltier thermoelectric cooling system to ensure that temperature sensitive vaccines are kept within their required temperatures. Any vaccines that aren’t kept between +2°C to +8°C have to be discarded, leading to delays in vaccine administration. 

The CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier is also supplied with both mains and in-car power cables and a convenient shoulder strap, making it easy to carry. The interior of the carrier features a basket with a divider to help separate vaccines if required. 

Regarding the product launch, Stephen Johnson, Managing Director of CoolMed said: “Due to the roll-out of the Covid vaccine, we’ve been inundated with orders for medical-grade refrigerators. We were also being asked about smaller refrigeration units that one person could use to transport vaccines, so we developed and manufactured the CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier. We’re thrilled to launch this product at such an important time and further help with the roll-out of the Covid vaccinations.”

The CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier is priced at £299.99 ex. VAT. Learn more here: https://www.coolmed.co.uk/portable-vaccine-carrier-cmpvc12
