Race For a Vaccine: Distributing Vaccines Across America
NBC Today Show News – November 30, 2020

NBC News featured Modality Solutions’ expert engineers and its Advantage Transport Simulation Laboratory in one of its continuing reports on a “Race for a Vaccine.” On Monday, November 30, 2020, Today Show hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb introduced the pressing cold chain logistics topic of “Distributing Vaccines Across America.” NBC Investigative & Consumer Correspondent Vicky Nguyen provided viewers with an inside look at the how, when, and where of the critical operations required to get the vaccine to the people who need it most.
Footage of our engineers in the simulation laboratory testing product showed how Modality Solutions puts actual vaccine-filled containers through tests like vibrations that mimic bumpy roads, extreme temperatures, dangerous drops, and changes in air pressure that simulate air travel, and more.
Bottom Line: Several vaccine trials are now near completion, but getting those vaccines from manufacturers to a clinic near you is a mega logistics operation, never done before on this scale.
