My baby's pedi said that she might give us the second dose of her first vaccine so it can be injected elsewhere as we won't be in the country for quite some time.
Do u girls know if i will be able to take the vaccine with me on the plane?If so what should i do to keep it cool?A special packaging or something like that?

I'm sorry,i'm thread happy this morning it's the second one i started but i hope u dont mind.

I would assume that they'd ship it to a local doctor rather than have you take it. It would probably be a big liability to give that to you directly.

I realize it's much to late to answer your question. I left the board for a long time after something attacked my computer while on this site. Left me a little afraid to drop in.

Vaccine must remain in cold chain. It would be wrong of your doctor to give you a vaccine to just take with you. I don't know which vaccine you're referring to, but if it's a refrigerated vaccine, it must be between 2 and 8 degrees celcius or if frozen, less than -15 degrees celcius. Out of cold chain will result in a useless vaccine.

Some live-virus vaccines need to be frozen, while all others need to be refrigerated.
