COOL Project: Stakeholder summary report & chilly bin packing protocol for off-site immunisations

The purpose of the COOL Project was to investigate, review, select and test equipment used for mobile/offsite immunisations. This report explains how School-Based Immunisation Programmes are managing the cold chain and provides information and results from tests of currrent and alternative cold chain equipment and processes. The packing protocol details best practice guidelines arising from the products tested as part of the COOL Project. Providers using alternative packing methods and equipment can continue to do so provided that the National Standards for Vaccine Storage and Transportation for Immunisation Providers 2017 are adhered to.
