The breakthrough vaccine is produced in the US, Germany and Belgium. It must be stored below -70◦C and kept in sealed containers. However, dry ice will be used to preserve the temperature-sensitive vaccine whilst in transportation and storage. Dry ice can be a very serious hazard in a small, confined space that is not well-ventilated. As dry ice melts it turns into carbon dioxide gas, which can create dangerous levels of CO2 in the local atmosphere.
Here at Shawcity we have seen a noticeable increase in fit testing enquiries, with particular interest in the availability and sustainability of the adapters used during the fit testing process.
