NYT: Big challenge: Keeping COVID vaccines cold
For some reason, most prospective COVID-19 vaccines seem to require sub-arctic temperatures. This article explains the logistical challenge of maintaining that frigid temperature, from laboratory to injection. From having enough low-temp freezers, to producing enough low-temp glass vials, to a shortage of dry ice for shipping - it's a huge challenge, and that's just for the first world. Developing countries may never be able to manage it.
The article didn't mention one thing which immediately leapt to mind: Does the vaccine go into your arm
at 90 below zero? Or is it thawed out just before injection?
