Physical Damage Insurance for Vaccines from Maksure

After a year of uncertainty, millions of doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford/ AstraZeneca and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines have now been approved and manufactured, and with recent analysis indicating 95% efficacy, ready to be deployed, distributed and administered. Maksure Risk Solutions has partnered with leading London Market Cargo Insurers to support the cold chain supply system in developing a Physical Damage insurance policy addressing the specific and critical risk issues for vaccines in transit or storage including:

  • Decay;
  • Deterioration;
  • Spoilage;
  • Fire, collision, overturning and theft whilst in transit;
  • Power failure, breakdown of refrigeration and theft whilst in store.

The complexity of distributing vaccines in Africa is unique and requires a specialist broker that understands that landscape.

Maksure Risk Solutions is at the forefront in establishing a “Stock-throughput” programme, with large limits available upon request and policy wording designed specifically to protect valuable vaccines ensuring the safety, respect and security of the global population.
