Better keep 'em really cold until used.
What happens if the electricity goes out,
no one says anything about it and the storage
temp rises a few degrees then Maria, Jose
a little Tito get the vaccination? Will it be less
effective? Will it be effective at all? Could it
possibly make them sick? Or will it just be
"todo esta bien mi amigo no te preocuppado por nada"

Only the shadow will know.

One could always take periodic post vaccination antigen tests to see how the antibodies are doing over time. Testing B and T cell immunity would be more problematic.

Throw that variable into the equation, and you know it's going to happen. But little Tito gets an expired vaccine, catches Covid, is asymptomatic the whole time......... Who's gonna know?

It is just keeping the lights on and water running that cannot be overcome.

Using the Pfizer vaccine in great quantities in the DR is completely impractical. Thinking otherwise is a mountain, a mountain of BS.
Well, I did said "when there is a will…" ;)
