Closed Point of Distribution (POD) Workshop

Your Health Department, as part of our emergency preparedness, has planned an Emergency Dispensing Site (EDS). An EDS is a site where, in the event of a public health emergency, medication or vaccines, intended to prevent disease, may be dispensed quickly, to a large number of people. The EDS location in your community is managed by your local Health Department. In addition to an EDS, we were asked by the state, to identify facilities within the community that would be considered a Closed POD. A Closed POD serves members of its own facility-including staff and their families and its residents. In an emergency, you would dispense medication supplied by the Health Department to your facility (a designated person from your facility would pick up the medication from the primary EDS Site). Your Closed POD would not be opened to the public.Becoming a Closed POD, helps to ensure continuity of your operations and provides the medications needed for your facility during a public health emergency. We have attached an Intent to Participate Agreement, known as an MOU, Memorandum of Understanding, as well as additional information for your review and consideration.
