What is dry ice and why is it suddenly so important?

You’ve probably heard of dry ice before — or maybe even made someyourself. But lately, dry ice has become a focal point in the news, due to its unique ability to help keep things very cold in transit without the same melted mess as regular ice. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine must be stored at a temperature of -94 degrees Fahrenheit (-70 degrees Celsius), and dry ice will play a crucial role in maintaining the correct temperature as the vaccine travels for distribution. In the United States, there are currently 14.8 million reported cases of COVID-19 and over 282,000 deaths, with the numbers expected to continue to climb during the holiday season amid record-high hospitalizations.
