A: There are cold storage challenges with the Pfizer vaccine because it must be stored at minus 70 degrees Celsius, equivalent to minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit. Some research labs and hospitals affiliated with research institutions have ultra freezers that can do this, but many rural hospitals and clinics do not. Pfizer plans to ship its vaccines in specialized containers equipped with dry ice, and California plans to buy dozens of ultra-cold freezers to help supplement the storage and transport of the Pfizer vaccine. Some health systems and local health departments have been buying ultracold freezers in anticipation of the Pfizer vaccine. The Moderna vaccine should be less difficult to manage, since it is kept at minus 20 degrees Celsius, which a standard medical freezer can accommodate.

She is more of a renter than a builder. Another difference between the three is the type of insect each mud dauber targets to provision the nests — any backyard-sleuth entomologists out there might find this the most interesting habit of mud daubers. They seek out spiders as insect prey. Not just any spider, each type of mud dauber has their own special list of spiders to pursue. … [Read more...] about Meet the Asian mud dauber, Colorado’s newest non-native hunter wasp now eating spiders in your garden
