Along with countless other healthcare professionals, I have eagerly been awaiting a vaccine for COVID-19. I have been telling my patients that mass vaccination will be the key to defeating this deadly virus, especially since we haven’t been doing a very good job with other measures (like social distancing).

So I breathed a sigh of relief when the Pfizer vaccine was approved, and I have gratefully received both doses of mine. However, as many people know, there is a huge problem with that vaccine: it has to be kept very, very cold: -70°F.
