Sometimes during a disaster or emergency, a Mass
vaccination / medication Dispensing site (also known
as a Point of Dispensing site) is opened.
Communicating information about the process of opening a
dispensing site and medicating a large number of
residents is important if the dispensing site is to be
effective. However, rural communities face great
challenges when opening a dispensing site because of
limited resources and staff. This section of the toolkit
provides materials and suggestions on how to deliver the
right messages to the public in a timely manner before,
during and after a mass-medication event.
