Are You Ready For the COVID-19 Booster Programme?
The UK Government has given the green light for the NHS to begin the planning of a COVID-19 vaccine booster programme.
There are significant concerns that, this winter, we will experience a much bigger flu season than what the public and the NHS have become accustomed to. To provide extra protection, all adults over 50 and anyone younger that qualifies for a flu jab, will be offered a COVID-19 booster.
Advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is that boosters will help maintain protection against Covid-19 and any new variants that arise for those most at risk, before winter comes.
The Pfizer BioNTech, AstraZeneca and Moderna vaccines are now approved and being used across the United Kingdom.
Each of the three vaccines has specific temperature thresholds for which they are required to be stored in order to be effective. This is an important factor to consider during transport of the vaccines and once they've reached their final destination.
Invisible Systems are supporting a number of NHS organisations to remotely monitor the temperature of vaccine fridges and freezers.
Our smart sensors are a reliable and cost-effective solution to prevent vaccine wastage and ensure efficacy for patients.
As no integration is required with existing IT infrastructure, the plug and play system can be put in place quickly and easily following an initial site survey.
The sensors can be used both in static locations and whilst on the move when required*.
Should your fridge or freezer fall out of its specified temperature threshold, your team will be alerted via email, call or SMS to ensure that preventative action can be taken.
All data from the sensors is delivered to a user-friendly, visual interface. Data from numerous sites can be accessed via one system, ensuring the management of your operations and reporting of your temperature is efficient.
