Vaccine Program Targets Governments, Hospitals and Public Health Care

Agencies

INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to help government entities, hospitals and public health care agencies be prepared for the winter immunization season, Sentry Logistic Solutions is aggressively educating the industry about the proper storage and handling of vaccine materials. In order to ensure the integrity of these biological products, vaccine storage and distribution functions should be outsourced to specialty third-party logistics providers (3PL) with expertise in pharmaceutical cold chain storage, handling and logistics. Sentry has vast experience storing and transporting regulated, temperature-sensitive drug products, including vaccines.

"Sentry's outsourced vaccine storage and distribution service provides valuable assistance to pharmaceutical and health care organizations concerned with drug product integrity, supply chain security and fast, efficient distribution," said Jennifer Marcum, Sentry's chief executive officer. "These issues are especially important in the storage and dispersal of disease-preventing vaccines. Sentry has the expertise, facility, personnel and protocols to securely store, accurately track and quickly transport vaccines anywhere in the continental United States."

According to the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) estimates, millions of dollars worth of vaccine are wasted each year because of poor storage methods. Sentry's vaccine storage and distribution service is designed to protect the efficacy of vaccine inventories throughout the supply chain. It is ideally suited for government and hospitals' emergency and pandemic response plans as well as for short- and long-term vaccine management initiatives. Sentry's facility, systems and processes meet the CDC's recommendations for proper vaccine storage and handling procedures. The company also holds the appropriate local, state and federal licenses and accreditations for safely handling and transporting regulated drug products.

Organizations that utilize Sentry's vaccine storage and distribution service receive:

-- Assurance that vaccine storage and supply chain systems are secure, meet specific temperature requirements and are CDC-compliant;

-- End-to-end logistics assistance, significantly reducing the amount of time needed to distribute vaccines to multiple sites;

-- Advanced inventory management systems that document the vaccines' entire chain of custody and track the drugs' temperature history as well as product receipts, shipments and expiration dates;

-- Rapid response to public health crises such as disease outbreaks, vaccine shortages and disruption of the vaccine supply; and

-- Flexible short-term, long-term, emergency and contingency vaccine storage, logistics and distribution programs as well as fully outsourced supply chain solutions.
