Windsor Regional Hospital has procured three -80 degree Celsius freezers to accommodate the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and four -25 degree Celsius freezers for the Moderna vaccine, and they are on-site ready for use.

The hospital says that the -80 degree Celsius freezers can hold approximately 400,000 doses each. The -25 degree Celsius freezers can hold approximately 140,000 doses each.

The hospital also says they have been communicating with its Erie-St. Clair regional partners to ensure that some of these freezers can be transported to other locations across the region once the Province confirms a distribution plan.

“We immediately procured freezers sufficient to store the capacity needed for our region literally the minute we heard of the vaccine storage requirements. We will work with ESC partners and the Vaccination Taskforce on receipt, distribution and inoculation,” said David Musyj, President and CEO, Windsor Regional Hospital.
