Medicines Need to Be Stored at Specific Temperatures

Some medicines – and most vaccines – need to be stored within a specific temperature range, usually between 2°C and 8°C.

This is the temperature range that keeps them stable. In the case of vaccines, they need to stay within this range in order to be able to affect the immune system. If they get too hot, their immunogenicity is diminished and they can become useless.

Some vaccines, like measles, are particularly sensitive to temperature. When the temperature is too high, these vaccines can be easily damaged.

When the temperature gets too cold, this can also cause damage to vaccines. The diluent, which is the liquid used in many vaccines, can freeze in cold temperatures and this can destroy the vaccine.

As a result, they must be kept within this tight temperature range from the moment they are produced right up until they are used.


Correctly Storing Medicine

If medicines are not stored properly they may not work in the way they were intended, and so pose a potential risk to the health and wellbeing of the person receiving the medicine.
Medicines should be stored under conditions which ensure that their quality is maintained. The temperature of storage is one of the most important factors that can affect the stability of a medicine. The purpose of this guidance is to clarify the temperature storage arrangements that a residential care service should have in place when it manages medicines on behalf of people in the service

The temperature of the medicine refrigerator should be monitored daily when it is in use – a maximum/minimum thermometer is recommended for this purpose. The thermometer should be read and reset daily, and the maximum and minimum temperatures recorded. Where the temperature is out with recommended limits measures should be introduced by the service to rectify this situation e.g. defrosting the fridge. Any action
taken should be recorded. There should be a procedure in place to ensure regular cleaning and defrosting of the fridge.
