Ensuring the authenticity and safety of vaccines through traceability V-Trace

READ WHITE PAPER

Groundbreaking work in the global healthcare ecosystem has produced the fastest vaccine rollout in modern medical history. This unprecedented worldwide effort requires equally unprecedented innovation to ensure that vaccines are authentic, safe and delivered in a timely and efficient manner.

Governments are under tremendous pressure to ensure that vaccine doses are kept at proper temperatures and arrive at the right location at the right time.

OPTEL has partnered with Bureau Veritas to deploy a traceability system that provides the assurance that governments, regulatory bodies and vaccine recipients need.

Securing vaccines with supply chain traceability

The V-Trace digital platform, created by OPTEL, tracks doses along the entire supply chain, from before they leave manufacturing facilities to the moment they are administered at vaccination centers anywhere in the world.

OPTEL is the only company with the ability to provide complete end-to-end traceability, providing actionable, granular data at every step of the supply chain. Governments can use this data to provide up-to-date information regarding vaccine availability and authenticity, thereby securing much-needed public confidence in the process.

More than a simple digital solution, V-Trace is reinforced along the logistics chain by onsite inspectors from Bureau Veritas, one of the world’s leading specialists in testing, inspection and verification.

Instant authentication

Using the V-Trace app, healthcare providers can instantly authenticate vaccine doses. They can then record when and where each vaccine is administered, ensuring that no one will receive a counterfeit or ineffective vaccine. Bureau Veritas inspectors manage, process and analyze data in a state-of-the art, customizable digital control tower. They offer government clients corrective action plans whenever and wherever needed.

These inspectors check central storage locations and local distribution channels, ensuring inventory accuracy, thus preventing shortages and misreporting. They can even provide monitoring and control services at vaccination centers.

Verification and monitoring are thus integrated into every step, reassuring the public of the vaccine’s safety and efficacy.

OPTEL and Bureau Veritas are proud to be able to answer these four crucial needs to guarantee a safe and effective vaccine rollout:

  • Visibility and transparency
  • Reassurance
  • Stock and inventory inspection
  • Combating counterfeits

V-TRACE AT THE HEART OF THE SOLUTION

The V-Trace platform provides greater transparency, thus boosting public confidence and the overall success of vaccination campaigns. Ensuring traceability, V-Trace enables governments to better anticipate and manage their supplies. Through one coherent system, governments may provide visibility, reassurance and better maintenance of inventories. This solution also prevents the sale of counterfeit vaccines, ensuring a safer and more trustworthy rollout around the world.
