"This planning guide is intended to facilitate development of an operational plan with drive-thru POD [Point of Dispensing] capabilities. These capabilities would be used during an emergency when it is necessary to request medical materials from the state (including SNS [Strategic National Stockpile] assets) and institute drive-thru POD activities in the jurisdiction. Drive-thru PODs potentially increase throughput, allow for infection control by limiting interactions between the public, and can serve populations that cannot stand or walk for long periods of time such as children and the elderly. When complete, the operational document should contain all information necessary for drive-thru POD management, including point-of-contact information, maps, flow charts, and POD clinic management guidance."
