The EPS Industry Alliance (EPS-IA) is pleased to report U.S. COVID vaccines will be shipped exclusively in EPS coolers. The Pfizer COVID vaccine must be kept exceptionally cold (-70°C). EPS is the only material that meets the vaccine’s strict performance requirements. The pharmaceutical distributor forecasts between now and late Spring they will need 5,200 truckloads of EPS coolers. EPS-IA member Foam Fabricators has been manufacturing the vaccine coolers since July.
