Default vodka soaked vanilla bean and lemon peal

im going to soak vanilla bean and ten lemon peels in vodka will the vodka sterilize the bean and peal or do i need to somehow do it before i dump into secondary. also im leaving this marinate for a week or two so while doing so does it need to be in the fridge.

Vodka will sterilize the bean and peels and also extract the flavor. It doesn't need to be refrigerated. And one vanilla bean goes a long way when soaked in vodka as far as flavoring.
