Dispensing Partner Program

emergencyprepchecklist_med.jpgIn the event of a large scale infectious disease exposure there will be a need to quickly provide medications to the population in a short period of time. The Dispensing Partner Program is an opportunity for businesses and other local organizations to assist Public Health Officials in preparing for and responding to potentially serious, even catastrophic, infectious disease threats to the community.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A DISPENSING PARTNER
  • Work with Marin County Health and Human Services to create a plan for providing medication to your staff and their families
  • Receive direct communication from Marin County Health and Human Services following a large-scale exposure to an infectious disease
  • Provide medications for your staff and their family members as needed
BENEFITS OF BEING A DISPENSING PARTNER
  • Staff members report to work to receive medications for themselves and their family
  • Reduces wait-time for your staff to receive medication
  • Help the community by reducing number of people needed to be served at community-based Points of Dispensing (PODs)
