U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Cherie Gregory, an allergy and immunization technician with the 35th Medical Operations Squadron, annotates in a patient’s medical record of their immunotherapy visit at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Jan. 14, 2016. The allergen is kept in a Styrofoam container and cooled in the immunization clinic’s refrigerator for each step of their prescribed therapy. The Defense Logistics Agency published an updated joint regulation reinforcing DLA Troop Support Medical’s role and introducing new protocols in cold chain management.
