Immunization is an effort to actively generate/increase a person's immunity to a disease, so that if one day they are exposed to the disease, they will not get sick or only experience mild illness. This is done by administering a vaccine into a person's body. Vaccines used to form antibodies have some susceptibility or weakness to damage. Vaccines have the potential to be damaged when exposed to heat and freezing temperatures. Vaccines should be stored at a temperature between 2 oC - 8 oC continuously. Vaccine storage should not reach the freezing temperature of the vaccine so as not to damage the function of the vaccine itself. Often the temperature of the vaccine increases over long journeys, thereby increasing the exposure of the vaccine to heat. This happens a lot when administering vaccines to remote border areas and islands, especially in border areas. The quiet design of vaccine cooler boxes is important by taking into account the ability to maintain room temperature. Factors that must be considered in designing this include insulating materials, electrical equipment and technology indicators, energy storage media discussed here. Parameters that affect tool performance are also discussed. So with this paper we can learn how to design a vaccine box comprehensively to produce a device that meets health standards
