Economic Benefits of Keeping Vaccines at Ambient Temperature During Mass Vaccination: The Case of Meningitis A Vaccine in Chad
In this study, the researchers modelled the economic benefits of keeping vaccines at or near ambient temperature in a CTC during a mass vaccination campaign against meningococcal meningitis in Chad. The results indicate that substantial cost savings could be obtained in similar campaigns if the cold chain system were replaced with a CTC between the initiation of district-level storage and vaccination.
