The CHMP technical committee of the European drug agency Ema has expressed a “positive opinion” to allow the transport and storage of anti Covid Pfizer vaccine vials “at temperatures between -25 and -15 ° C (ie the temperature of the freezers for standard drugs) for a one-off period of 2 weeks “. This is what the EU body communicates in a note. This, the agency clarifies, “is an alternative to long-term storage of the vials at a temperature between -90 and -60 ° C in special freezers. This is expected to” facilitate the rapid introduction and distribution of the vaccine into the EU reducing the need for storage conditions at extremely low temperatures throughout the supply chain “.
