New VFC/VFAAR Vaccine Packaging

New VFC/VFAAR Vaccine Packaging

Follow these instructions to return the new eco-friendly vaccine packaging to McKesson and Merck.

Refrigerated Vaccines

McKesson is using the EcoFlex96 shippers to ship refrigerated VFC and VFAAR vaccines. These shippers must be returned to avoid interruption of your vaccine shipments.

Use these instructions to return EcoFlex96 shippers.

The return shipping label should be attached to the inner flap on the box. If no return label was provided, please contact Christine Wilson (christine.wilson@phila.gov) or Charma Miller (charma.miller@phila.gov) for assistance in obtaining the return label.

If UPS regularly delivers to your site, the empty shipper(s) can be left in the usual location for pick up and return.

To schedule a pick up, call (774)-233-7106 or email JSmyth@coldchaintech.com, provide the return tracking number and the address for pick up, and a pick up will be scheduled for you.

Frozen Vaccines

Merck is transitioning to reusable shipping containers (pictured below) to ship frozen VFC and VFAAR vaccines. These shippers must be returned to avoid interruption of your vaccine shipments.

Each shipper will be preaddressed to AeroSafe.

Please contact Christine Wilson (christine.wilson@phila.gov) or Charma Miller (charma.miller@phila.gov) with any questions about the process.
