Idea Exchange: Reuse vaccine trays for take-home syringes

Mar 01, 2011
By staff

Occasionally, we will dispense injectable medications in predrawn syringes for owners to administer at home. Vaccine trays are a good size for dispensing these syringes in. We just snap the tray top and bottom back together with the syringes inside and put the label on the tray. The tray keeps the syringes together in a compact container and helps prevent accidental depression of the plungers, which may happen if the syringes are sent home in a bag.
