Once the vaccine arrives it needs to be kept cold.

The cold container where the vaccine will be stored is running, but Max and staff are having trouble regulating the temperature. I don’t quite understand all of the issues, but Max set the temp to 5 degrees and the thermometer that we installed is reading 1.7 degrees – Max reset the temp and visited a couple of hours later and the temp is now set at 2 degrees.

We're experimenting with the temperature control panel in the back of the container. The thermostat inside the container is difficult to regulate. I will look into this more tomorrow.

The vaccine will arrive in Haiti any day now.
