Vaccine Carrier, model IVC#3#002, manufactured by Inalsa Limited, New Delhi, India. Supplied by UNICEF Supply Division, Copenhagen, Denmark, 1994. Used for maintaining cold conditions in the vaccine cold chain. Contains 4 icepacks. Approved by Unicef and World Health Organisation (WHO) for use in the expanded program of immunisation.

The vaccine cold chain is the term used for storing and distributing vaccines in good condition. This ensures that vaccines are kept at the correct, monitored temperature from manufacture through distribution, and allows for monitoring and forecasting of a vaccination programme. Carriers like this one are essential for ensuring vaccines remain at ideal temperatures when travelling into remote areas.
