Vaccines and Cold-Chain Inspections for Health-care Providers

Vaccines are an important aspect of supporting a safe and healthy community. Lambton Public Health (LPH) provides publicly funded vaccines to all approved health-care providers (HCPs) and we inspect to ensure safe storage of vaccines.

The cold-chain inspection program is mandated by the Ministry’s Vaccine and Storage Handling Protocol, and inspections are completed on all approved vaccine fridges once a year at all locations where publicly funded vaccines are stored. We check approved vaccine fridges to ensure that they are following the Ministry’s guidelines to ensure vaccine effectiveness.

For more information or questions about public health provided vaccines or cold-chain inspections, contact Lambton Public Health.
