Make One Shot Enough with High-Quality Vaccine Labels

It’s winter, and the good will of the holiday season is in full swing. As a vaccine manufacturer, using secondary vaccine labels on your syringes can help push your customers’ first-time success rate to near 100% — and maybe even spare you a visit from Scrooge’s foreboding ghosts in the middle of the night.

Preparation / Expiration Date

It’s always a good idea to state when a syringe was prepared and when it expires based on industry standards for the type of infusion inside the reservoir. This is especially helpful in stockpiling situations, where vaccinations are kept at ready, in case a risky viral infection breaks out. If the vaccine is unneeded, it may go into long-term storage, hopefully to be rolled out later, if the risk re-emerges.

Storage Method

How vaccinations are stored can have a big impact on their lifespan. How fast have those molecules been moving since they were created or sampled and injected in the syringe? The slower, the better. For example, with refrigerator storage, you still get spoilage pretty fast, but cryogenic storage can virtually bring things to a halt at the molecular level. Knowing the storage method for vaccine can be a key for evaluating both its efficacy and true expiration date.

Allergy Alerts

Published on a National Center for Biotechnology (NCBI) website, researcher Eun Hee Chung’s study on vaccine allergies finds that “Currently, the increasing numbers of vaccine administrations are associated with increased reports of adverse vaccine reactions. While the general adverse reactions including allergic reactions caused by the vaccine itself or the vaccine components, are rare, they can in some circumstances be serious and even fatal.”

Examples of vaccine ingredients that could cause allergic reactions include: egg, gelatin, yeast, and latex. In addition to helping the vaccination go right on the first try, you can help spare patients the agony of allergic reactions, and, in turn, help reduce medical errors and preventable medical costs.


Reading the contraindications for a vaccine can spare recipients confusion. For example, if you sell a flu vaccine, stating the medicine isn’t for immediate relief of flu symptoms may be an appropriate contraindication for educating patients, lest they receive flu shots, don’t start feeling better rapidly, and thus consider the vaccine a failure, when the magic potion is designed to prevent contracting the virus, and creating a milder version of the virus if contracted.
