The Manufacturer is Working on the Simpler Shelf Life of Corona Vaccine
The German corona vaccine manufacturer BioNTech wants to make the shelf life of its vaccine easier. This is the first vaccine approved in the European Union.
The vaccine, which was developed together with Pfizer, must now be stored at minus 70 degrees.
But BioNTech wants to bring this cooling temperature to a “more relaxed” level for long-term storage of the specimen. The results are expected at the end of January.
The product is now shipped in specially designed dry ice shipping boxes, which will hold the product for up to 15 days.
At vaccination centres, the vaccine can be stored unopened in delivery boxes or regular refrigerators for up to five days at 2 to 8 degrees, the company said.
The actual vaccination can take place at room temperature.
