Temperature for storage of various COVID vaccines

Figure 1
There is ongoing discussion about cold chain requirements of multiple Covid vaccines in development. Vaccines have different storage temperatures. Some mRNA vaccines have extremely low storage temperatures, but can apparently used for a few days under regular vaccine distribution temperatures of 2 to 8°, after thawing. Understanding these requirements is important to estimate the feasibility of vaccines in various parts of the world. The attached poster has a summary as of 22 November 2020.

Several upcoming vaccines can be used within the existing vaccination framework in India.
