CDC Estimates $20 million/yr waste from poor refrigeration

Thousands revaccinated after shots spoil

In one recent case in Sioux City, Iowa, more than 1,000vaccines in refrigerator families were notified by letter and telephone that they needed to get their children revaccinated. State officials found that the refrigerator at the clinic that administered the shots repeatedly dropped below freezing over a 17-month period in 2005 and 2006, potentially ruining the vaccines stored there. "We just didn't notice it," said Dr. Ray Sturdevant, president of the Prairie Pediatrics and Adolescent Clinic.

Poor refrigeration has been blamed for similar problems elsewhere around the country over the past 2 1/2 years: In St. Cloud, Minn., a clinic had to revaccinate 8,600 patients, most of them children. In Lane County, Ore., 500 children and adults had to get another shot. In western Florida, it happened to about 250 kids.
