Key Features:


The Porta Thermal 30 Litre Vaccine Bag:

This large capacity, 30 litre vaccine carry bag is ideal for transporting cold chain items for long periods of time, including day long community nursing visits. The standard vaccine bag is designed to be carried by an individual, or has ladder handles for carrying by two people of different heights. There is also an option with an integrated trolley for full capacity heavy loads if preferred.


Our insulated vaccine bags are designed for transporting chilled products and extending the time items remain between 2-8°C. The new updated 2020 version builds on the heritage of our original thermal bag but brings improvements including durability, infection control properties, insulation and handling. These bags are typically used to transport vaccines or other temperature sensitive medicines but can be used for any type of thermal-controlled transportation.
