To end the coronavirus pandemic, an effective distribution of the vaccine is required, which requires specific temperatures. Those responsible for transporting the vaccines are the newest heroes on the front line, who are facing a series of challenges to make sure that vaccines arrive in good condition, regardless of difficulties.
The production of vaccines was a very important step in the progress of the fight against coronavirus and the way they will be delivered in each country represents a challenge, mainly due to the delicacy of the product in relation to the conditions provided by each region.
Several laboratories have already proven the effectiveness of their products in preventing this contagious disease. However, the challenge after creating the vaccine is distribution. And, each of these doses needs to be transported at a specific temperature, so special equipment is needed.
This means that many countries, with less preparation and capacity to transport vaccines, start the process of vaccination and distribution more slowly than the others. In addition, as highlighted by the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef), those responsible for distributing these injections are among the heroes of this crisis.
“A vaccine cannot be distributed alone. It depends on committed health workers who cross mountains, rivers and deserts. It requires innovative technologies and authentic value ”, said a Foundation post on Facebook.

“And we are proud to make every step of the way possible, helping 100 countries to protect vaccines and maintain their effectiveness in a‘ refrigeration chain ’. This uninterrupted line of refrigerators allows vaccines to be kept at the right temperature, even in the hottest and most difficult places in the world, ”she added.
Several photos are running on the networks, people different countries are doing everything to help with the distribution of the vaccine. Vehicles have been adapted and isolated places are receiving some doses. The end of the pandemic depends on the good maintenance and homogeneous distribution of this resource.
“The refrigeration chain is now about to be more important than ever. We are reinforcing care to ensure that COVID-19 vaccines can be distributed quickly and safely around the world, ”adds Unicef.
