Last Mile Vaccine Delivery

Most of 2020 was spent in the search for vaccines that could slow down the spread of the novel coronavirus that had brought the global economy to a standstill. As governments and pharmaceutical organizations joined hands worldwide, the search seems to have paid off with vaccines showing the desired level of efficacy and receiving approvals. But this has highlighted the second piece of the COVID-19 challenge. The virus doesn’t recognize borders in a logistically and economically diverse world.

How do we ensure that vaccines are transported from point of manufacturing to point of administration while maintaining their integrity? Temperature controlled storage requirements for these vaccines are extremely stringent (with some vaccines needing a temperature of -700C). Most of the current infrastructure – given the scale of COVID-19 vaccine distribution – are not equipped to handle such requirements. The need for an IoT-led, safe, reliable, and effective real-time vaccine consignment tracking mechanism that ensures round-the-clock temperature monitoring and integrity management – cannot be stressed more, as we face the world’s biggest logistics and supply chain challenge till date.

Challenges & Trends: Vaccine Cold Chain

Introducing Smart Vaccine Distribution Management

Smart Vaccine Distribution Management (SVDM) solution by IoT WoRKSTM is an integrated offering that helps enterprises ease the challenges arising out of complex global distribution programs. SVDM comprises IoT sensors to track the location, and monitor the condition/integrity of vaccine packages or containers, and an interactive management portal to maintain real-time visibility of the shipment. Further, by leveraging enterprise systems integrations, and optional Blockchain synchronization, SVDM ensures truly intelligent vaccine distribution management by automating workflows that maximize efficiencies for every stakeholder in the value chain.
