Varcode optimistic about cold chain distribution of Covid-19 vaccines
Despite cold chain challenges, companies say early vaccines can be distributed this year, if approved, as the logistics supply chain works to ship at scale in 2021.
Joseph Battoe, CEO of Chicago-based cold chain technology firm Varcode, indicates that his organization is currently working with several vaccine manufacturers and distributors on customized solutions for monitoring Covid-19 vaccines.
“I’m really optimistic about the big medical centers and the big urban areas getting this right at this point. So much time, attention, and money [has been] put into this,” Battoe said, citing the Trump administration’s Operation Warp Speed effort to fast-track vaccine development and distribution. “My opinion is that the cold chain is ready to deliver massive quantities of these vaccines in large cities to big point-of-care facilities. They’ve been gearing up for this for months.”
