POST 00603E : DESTRUCTION OF VACCINES 12 September 2003 ________________________________________ Florence Fermon (mailto:[log in to unmask]) and Sophie-Marie Scouflaire (mailto:[log in to unmask]) from Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) are asking for expert advice on the best method for destroying unusable vaccines. ________________________________________ An often-asked question in the field : How to destroy unusable vaccines (expired, cold-chain failure...)? Concretely we have to destroy a stock of measles vaccine. What realistic field method do you recommend? Do we really need to use encapsulation? Thank you for your help.
