A collaboration between Fresno State and Community Medical Centers will provide a much-needed, low-temperature freezer to that hospital system.

The freezer is capable of storing 95,000 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine for front-line medical providers and others.

Freezers that can cool down to at least -70C are currently in high demand but in short supply, since that’s the cooling capacity needed for doses of the Pfizer vaccine, now being distributed in the U.S. The Thermo Scientific Revco Series freezer being provided by the Jordan Agricultural Research Center can reach temperatures of -86.

“We thank Fresno State for its generosity and all our community partners that have helped us meet the unique challenges of this pandemic,” said Matt Joslin, vice president for Community Medical Centers. “Their efforts will make a significant, positive impact for the health care providers in our region.”

Health care workers are considered one of the most vulnerable groups to Covid-19.
