As healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities in the US start receiving their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, Creche Innovations, a medical device company, alongside a Covid-19 vaccine focus group consisting of physicians, nurses and pharmacists from across the country, have developed the Pandemic Mobile Command Center (PMCC) with built-in MicroCool Refrigeration to help maintain the vaccine cold chain. MicroCool reportedly works with any digital data logger (DDL) that an entity wants to use.
According to Creche, the PMCC will help retail pharmacies, hospitals and satellite/temporary/off-site locations with starting and maintaining drive-thru vaccination clinics that follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s best practices.
The PMCC allows for Covid-19 vaccination providers that are a part of the CDC’s US Covid-19 Vaccination Program to:
- Preserve cold-chain conditions at all times, in accordance with the emergency use authorization (EUA)/vaccine packet insert and CDC guidelines
- Constantly keep track of the MicroCool Refrigerator temperature using a DDL of their choosing
- Ensure proper vaccine and supply inventory before the start of each vaccination clinic day
- Have immediate access to all necessary Covid-19 ancillary supplies
Creche began PMCC production in Q4 2020 and plans to launch in the US and Canada this month.
