  • It's usually UPS or Fed Ex, and if it's a frozen vax, it's sent on dry ice. It goes to materials management (for hospitals or large facilities) who then gets it to the immunizations department (or whomever does the vaccinations), who then puts it in the fridge or cabinet.

  • Why?

  • They use special delivery companies that deal with things like that. You've never seen a car that has warnings about hazardous materials, or has a lab logo on it?

  • I'll bet it's different for every office & manufacturer.
