Call out to all air operators transporting Covid vaccines with Dry Ice –
– (Yes, we’re talking about Covid again!)
Because many Covid-19 vaccines require deep refrigeration they are being transported with large quantities of dry ice (CO₂). This may pose some issues with those in the logistics chain handling such shipments. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the USA has released an explanatory document which provides a handy insight into the hazards that dry ice poses and considerations that need to be made if you’re in the chain.
The document is aimed predominantly at the air operators/airlines but has useful info for us, ground-based folk, as well. Find it on the Airsafe website at the following location and enjoy!
