10 Immunisation Incidents ‘It is never acceptable to be in the position of having to tell individuals that they may not be protected by the vaccines they have received in good faith as a result of human error’ NHS |10

11 Cold chain incidents Minimize risk by; Identifying a member of the Pharmacy team to receive the vaccines and place in fridge soon after delivery. Record the fridge temperature daily – morning and evening. Reset the temperature – 3 R’s read, record, reset. Fridge hard wired into wall – no plug to dislodge. Lock fridge door – reduces risk of door being left open. NHS |11
