@ Laura Revolt--No they have not discussed this. Here is the guidance that can be found on the Vaccine Prep and Admin Summary for Pfizer Vaccine 12 years and older purple cap: Keep mixed vaccine between 2°C and25°C (36°F to 77°F), minimize exposureto room light, and avoid exposure todirect sunlight and ultraviolet light.Administer within 6 hours. Discard anyunused vaccine after 6 hours. Do notreturn to freezer storage. Link: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/pfizer/downloads/prep-and-admin-summary.pdf

The last handout is 19 years and older: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/admin/downloads/IM-Injection-adult.pdf. Also there is a handout specific to needle length: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/admin/downloads/vaccine-administration-needle-length.pdf. All of these handouts are great resources and can be posted in the vaccine admin and prep area within your office.
