On December 25 last year Linde Gas Hungary, one of the largest industrial and medical gas producer companies in the country, was requested to distribute the first shipment of coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech at -70°C, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The proper conditions for storing and transporting the vaccine can only be achieved by using dry ice, containers with sensors, and ventilated vehicles designed specifically for transportation of medical products.  Due to Linde's dry ice production capacity and technological background, the company can provide the entire supply chain for the task.

Linde Gas Hungary, with the support of the Police and Disaster Management, delivered the coronavirus vaccine from Dél-Pesti Centrumkórház to four designated vaccination centers:

  • Országos Korányi Pulmonológiai Intézet in Budapest
  • Semmelweis Egyetem (SOTE)
  • Kenézy Gyula Egyetemi Kórház in Debrecen
  • Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg Megyei Kórház in Nyíregyháza

"We are proud that Linde is taking on another role in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic by distributing vaccines," said Andreas X. Müller, head of cluster Hungary and Austria at Linde Gas.
