Bodossaki Foundation Donates 14 Freezers for Covid-19 Vaccine

The freezers will remain in the possession of the Greek health system for the storage of other medicines once the pandemic is over.


The Bodossaki Foundation on Thursday announced a donation of 14 ultra-cold freezers to Greece’s national health system to be used for the storage of new vaccines against the coronavirus when they arrive.

The special freezers guarantee the very low temperatures (below -70 degrees Celsius) which are necessary for the correct preservation of some of the vaccines.

The Bodossaki Foundation’s donation will support the health ministry’s effort to create special warehouses equipped with deep freezers with a 360 to 600 lt capacity each.

The new freezers will be delivered immediately for them to be available as soon as the first doses of the vaccines arrive in Greece.

After the end of the pandemic, the new equipment will remain at the disposal of public hospitals for preserving other medicines.
