6.6.2  Maintaining cold boxes and vaccine carriers

  • Always dry your vaccine carriers and cold boxes after use. If they are left wet with the lids closed, they will become mouldy. Mould may affect the seal of the cold boxes and vaccine carriers.
  • Store your cold boxes and vaccine carriers with the lid open if possible, when they are not being used.
  • Avoid placing cold boxes and vaccine carriers in the sun, as sunlight can cause cracks in their walls and the lids. If a cold box or vaccine carrier wall has a small crack you may be able to repair it with adhesive tape until you can get an undamaged one.
