2016 Shelton POD Facility Set-Up Exercise
On May 3, 2019, the Naugatuck Valley Health District completed a functional Facility Set-Up Exercise to test its ability to set up a Points of Dispensing(POD) operation. What is a POD? A POD is any of the locations to which the public is directed to obtain necessary drugs, vaccines, or supplies during a catastrophe or public health emergency. In this exercise, the set up of an operation in response to an emerging infectious disease that required mass prophylaxis was tested.
More information about the exercise can be found in the Shelton POD Functional Exercise After Action Report.
