Potential Vaccine Compromise Reporting

Step One:  

Activate Site/Clinic Emergency Response Plan

  1. Do not leave vaccine(s)/TSMP in non-functioning storage unit. Immediately move the vaccine(s)/TSMP to a working storage unit at proper temperature (refrigerator: 2-8°C/36-46°F, freezer: below -15°C/5°F. 
  2. Label exposed vaccine(s)/TSMP as "DO NOT USE," and place them in a separate container apart from other products in the storage unit. 
  3. DO NOT destroy, discard or use vaccine(s)/TSMP until released by: 
    • U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency Distribution Operations Center (USAMMA-DOC) for anthrax, smallpox or adenovirus. 
    • Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support Medical (DLA-TSM) for all other vaccines. 
  4. Notify your local leadership of the potential loss.
  5. Contact your Immunization Healthcare Specialist (IHS).
