Vaccine Storage Packet
Temperature Log for Refrigerator (Fahrenheit)
Completing this temperature log: Check the temperature in the refrigerator compartment of
your vaccine storage unit at least once in the morning and once in the evening each working
day. Place an "X" in the box that corresponds with the temperature and record the ambient
(room) temperature, the time of the temperature readings, and your initials. Once the month
has ended, save each month's completed form for 3 years, unless state or local jurisdictions
require a longer time period.
If the recorded temperature is in the shaded zone: This represents an unacceptable
temperature range.
