Children's HealthChildren's Health in Fredericksburg surpasses CDC's minimum requirements for VFC providers. They employ excellent vaccine storage and handling techniques and have no vaccine administration errors because written vaccine policies and protocols are easily accessible.

They purchased a stand alone freezer unit to be in compliance with CDC's current recommendations and have certified digital thermometers and certified back-up thermometers in both storage units. They use data loggers to comply with CDC's current recommendation for continuous temperature monitoring. The provider records temperatures twice a day, but monitors temperatures throughout each day. There have been no outages or excursions in the past three months.
