The Department of Health will arrange a briefing on the updates for all community vaccination centre operators.   Staff carried out stringent checks and inspections to ensure the vaccine complies with the product specifications and that the transportation process followed the relevant cold-chain requirements.   The Government will put the vaccine in validated ultra-low temperature freezers to ensure its proper storage in accordance with the temperature specified by the drug manufacturer.
