This factsheet provides guidance on vaccine handling and storage in GP practices. The guidance applies to all staff involved in the planning or delivery of immunisation programmes in primary care settings. It outlines the minimum standards that are required to ensure that vaccines are stored and managed properly so that immunisations are carried out safely and efficiently, minimising the risk of compromising the effectiveness of vaccines given to patients and thus reducing risk to patients and wastage of expensive medicines.
