Transporting Allergy Shot Serum

Hey Guys,
So I'm moving from PA to IL this weekend and will be in the car for 13 hours on Sunday. I got my last PA allergy shot today and have 4 vials of serum with me. Does anyone have any tips for travelling with serum?

The Allergist said to keep it cold but not so cold that it freezes. I have a cooler. You don't think it will freeze in the cooler, right? I don't want to show up with ruined serum! I was thinking of wrapping the envelope in bubble wrap so the serum isn't directly next to the ice.

I think that I'm over thinking this.. what else is new??

Re: Transporting Allergy Shot Serum

Bubble wrap is probably a good idea. There are tons of insulating lunch style containers out there as well. You might be able to find one to put the serum in, then put it in the cooler.

An insulated lunch bag is a great idea! Thanks, I'm going to go buy one today!
