Community Immunity: Point of Dispensing Project

Online Webinar through WebEx

The Toledo Lucas County Health Department received a grant from the Center for Disease Control to develop an Emergency Countermeasure Dispensing Staffing Plan. The Community Immunity POD project was developed with the goal to provide support materials needed for a community to maximize their resources by utilizing their faith- based organizations, schools and private businesses to dispense medical countermeasures in a timely and efficient manner in urban, suburban and rural areas. The project is designed around four outcome-based objectives: 1) Develop a scalable Local Assistant Technical Review (LTAR) compliant Mass Prophylaxis plan and create web-based training materials for POD staff/volunteers, 2) Recruit POD sites in the community and obtain POD site MOAs, 3) Work with POD sites to recruit, train, and sustain volunteers from within their organizations to staff their POD, and 4) Conduct drills and exercises.

We will discuss the program in detail and provide information to local health departments on how they can implement it. This will include discussion and implementation of a marketing plan. We will share lessons learned as well as best practices for using community partners to run and staff PODs. The presentation will include a demonstration of the web based tool kit.


 
Learning Objectives:

 1.       Describe the Community Immunity Point of Dispensing Program

 2.       Learn how to implement the program in your community

 3.       Understand how to navigate the website to utilize the tools available
