SCARR Moving & Storage is Proud To Provide Transportation and Delivery of the COVID-19 Vaccine to Mee Memorial Hospital
Monterey Bay Aquarium provides critical freezer unit to King City hospital Mee Memorial can boost its supply of COVID-19 vaccines
KING CITY — The Monterey Bay Aquarium is loaning Mee Memorial Hospital in King City an ultra-cold freezer unit that will enable the hospital to boost the numbers of vaccinations it will be able to provide to the southern Monterey County area where agricultural workers have been hard hit by COVID-19.
Mee Memorial has been providing vaccines using the Moderna vaccine, which needs to be kept at minus 20 Celsius (-4 F). That enables the Moderna product to be stored in a standard freezer. But the Pfizer vaccine needs to be stored at an extremely cold temperature — minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit (-70 C). That’s more than twice as cold as the summit of Mt. Everest in winter.
Natividad Medical Center partners with the Monterey Bay Aquarium to begin administration of the COVID-19 Vaccine.
