Storing vaccine at home refrigerator - is it a good idea?

Query : 
IPV vaccine store in room temperature in house hold refrigerator which was given to my baby.3 times ..i want to know its efficacy due wrong storage _? please give me details if IPV store more than 8 degree C temperature.

It is NEVER a good idea to store vaccines in the home refrigerator.
That being said, Inactivated vaccines (not live) are not affected by heat to a very large extent, and would remain effective even if the temperature goes slightly above the recommended 8 degrees Celsius.
