POD meetings prepare for possible outbreaks
By Shiloh Appel
On August 23 and September 6, 2017, POD meetings (Points of Dispensation meetings) were held in the SDDC auditorium. The meetings focused on creating the action plan for the November 1, 2017, Points of Dispensation exercise. The exercise is organized around the planning scenario of a public influenza outbreak. The same setup and procedures would be used for any other public outbreak of sickness or disease. This particular exercise will provide 850 vaccine doses for children 18 years and younger and 40 flu vaccine doses for POD volunteers and staffing. The exercise will take place in the Redfield Armory building.
The final POD planning meeting will take place on Oct.4 at SDDC before the exercise on November 1.
