The Project

The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department received a grant from The Center for Disease Control (CDC) to develop an Emergency Countermeasure Dispensing Staffing Plan. The goal of the Community Immunity Point of Dispensing project is to develop an exportable and scalable model to recruit, train, and sustain volunteers to staff Point of Dispensing (POD) sites throughout the community which will enable the locality to provide prophylaxis to 100% of residents within 48-hours. The project objective is to provide support materials needed to a community to maximize its resources by utilizing faith-based organizations, schools, and private businesses to dispense medical countermeasures in a timely and efficient manner.

The Resources

The resources provided in the Community Immunity POD Project include Planning Guides, recruitment and training materials, templates, resources to conduct drills, and a myriad of other helpful resources to conduct both Open and Closed PODs.
