A Guide to: the CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier

In summer we increased our product offering by launching our first portable vaccine carrier.

The CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier is designed to enable healthcare professionals to easily transport vaccines, solving the problem of cold chain compliance on the move and addressing the unique challenges of Covid vaccine distribution.

Since the start of the Covid pandemic, we’ve supplied the NHS with over 1000 medical refrigerators in order to safeguard their Covid vaccine stocks. The launch of our portable vaccine carrier allows us to help further with the vaccine roll-out by providing the last-mile solution for vaccine distribution.

Our vaccine carrier has an inside temperature range of +2°C to +8°C and can be set at any required temperature within this range. The digital temperature display allows practitioners to easily record and monitor the temperature within the carrier, ensuring vaccines are maintained within the cold chain temperature range during transit.

Our vaccine carrier is lightweight – weighing 5.6kg – and has a storage capacity of 12L. It uses a safe, gas free Peltier thermoelectric cooling system to ensure that temperature sensitive vaccines are kept within their required temperatures whilst being transported. This is of extreme importance as any vaccines that aren’t kept between +2°C to +8°C need to be discarded, leading to delays in vaccine administration.

Our portable vaccine carrier is also supplied with mains and in-car power cables, a convenient shoulder strap, making it easy to carry, and a divider basket to help separate vaccines if required.

Regarding the product launch, our Managing Director, Stephen Johnson, said: “Due to the roll-out of the Covid vaccine, we’ve been inundated with orders for medical-grade refrigerators. We were also being asked about smaller refrigeration units that one person could use to transport vaccines, so we developed and manufactured the CoolMed Portable Vaccine Carrier. We’re thrilled to launch this product at such an important time and further help with the roll-out of Covid vaccinations.”

Our portable vaccine carrier is priced at £349.99 ex. VAT.
