Emergency Power Backup

COVID Vaccine Storage Creating Backup Power Issues

By December 10, 2020 February 19th, 2021 No Comments

Reliable, Special Refrigeration At Distribution Points Have Businesses Concerned.

As the U.S ramps up to provide hundreds of millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses to the American public, the “where and how” of delivery to patients will be both difficult and complicated.

The bottom line: both the Moderna and Pfizer versions of the vaccine require special refrigeration, at -20º Celsius and  -70º Celsius respectively (that’s -4 and -94 degrees Fahrenheit). Since hundred of millions of people will need to receive 2 doses of the vaccine, plans are to distribute the shots at places like Walgreens, CVS, Walmarts, local grocery stores and even ordinary businesses. In every case, the vaccines must be kept refrigerated and very few of the aforementioned businesses are prepared for what’s coming.

What Happens If The Power Goes Down At Vaccine Distribution Sites?

Do the tens of thousands of proposed distribution sites have reliable backup power to handle the special refrigeration requirements? Not at all…especially if there’s a winter power outage.

That’s why the team at Critical Power is preparing to help provide new or used diesel, natural gas or mobile power generators where needed. We can help businesses assess the emergency power generation needs, determine the right generator and help to assure efficient delivery and installation.
