According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, as of 9:00 on July 26 (Monday), Typhoon No. 8 (Nipaltak) is moving north-northwest over the eastern sea of Japan. From now on, it will gradually turn to the northwest and is expected to land from Tohoku to Kanto on Tuesday, the 27th.
Typhoons often make landfall in Japan in the summer, and there are many related natural disasters such as storms, river floods, and debris flows. In addition, if you look at the past news, you can understand that power outages have occurred frequently due to these natural disasters.
If you encounter a power outage in the middle of summer, you might have sighed, "Is it a power outage?" I don't think that will be the case this year. Because this year, many medical institutions are vaccinated with the new corona vaccine, so we have to keep the vaccine that is very difficult to store. Large medical institutions are fully equipped with UPS (uninterruptible power supply), but I think most clinics and small medical institutions do not have one.
In the unlikely event of a power outage due to a typhoon, there is a high risk that the corona vaccine stored in the refrigerator will be forced to throw away the valuable vaccine due to the rise in the temperature inside the refrigerator.
Of course, if you have the budget, installing an expensive UPS (Uninterruptible System) would be a better choice. I wonder if it is necessary to spend tens of thousands of yen.
Reported on July 27th.
“Shiroi City, Chiba Prefecture, announced on the 27th that it had disposed of about 340 new coronavirus vaccines. The vaccine is 56 bottles, which is equivalent to inoculating 336 people.At around 8:40 am on July 24, a nurse at a medical institution checked the refrigerator where the vaccine was stored, and it was stopped. At that time, the temperature inside the warehouse reached around 28 degrees C. At room temperature, the vaccines had to be used within 6 hours, so the city disposed of all the vaccines that day. Regarding the vaccination on the day, it was handled with the vaccine in stock, and the vaccination itself was not affected.The city believes that some kind of trouble occurred in the storage battery that supplies power during the power outage, and for the time being, the same storage battery will not be used. I plan to stop.
On the other hand, Matsudo City also announced on the 27th that it had disposed of 198 doses of the new corona vaccine due to the power outage. According to the city, around 2:30 am on the 26th, about 1,730 houses in the western part of the city experienced a power outage due to equipment trouble, and the temperature inside the refrigerator at one clinic rose to 8.3 degrees, exceeding the regulation. about it. For this reason, 198 doses of vaccine in the refrigerator have been disposed of, but stocks remained and there was no impact on public vaccination. The city is calling on medical institutions to take precautions such as preparing ice packs in the event of a power outage such as a typhoon. ”
Our company recommends the "J-BOX BIO MISSION series", a cold storage box that does not use a power supply, as a vaccine storage measure in the event of a power outage.
Vaccines can be stored for a long time even without a power supply if a spare ice pack is used.
In addition, since it is easy to carry and comes with two vial holders and inner bags by default, it can be used not only for blackout countermeasures, but also for moving vaccines between hospitals and other medical institutions, and for vaccination rounds. I think that the cost performance is very good compared to UPS of tens of thousands of yen to hundreds of thousands of yen.
