Sparking Innovative Ideas to Deliver Vaccines to the Hardest-To-Reach "Last Mile"

In remote locations on Earth, which are sometimes referred to as "the last mile," we have been brainstorming innovative ways to safely transport vaccines. For example, Pfizer Vaccines has provided support to Not Impossible Labs to develop and pilot creative solutions to issues related to "last mile" logistics, and aid in delivering vaccines to millions of people who are left isolated by conventional efforts. With support from Pfizer, Not Impossible Labs convened a student engineering hackathon and sponsored two engineering teams at Georgia Tech University to design potential solutions, such as solar-powered drone boats that utilize water currents to save money and energy when transporting vaccines, while using river water to help keep vaccines at the required cool temperature during transport.
