ABSTRACT

Standardized Mass Prophylaxis Point of Dispensing (POD) Field Operations Guide (FOG)   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Overview: "The purpose of this document is to provide a standardized point of dispensing (POD) field operating guide (FOG) for use in POD planning by counties and tribes in the state of Oregon. The POD FOG describes how to set up and manage points of dispensing (PODs) that are scalable, adaptable in the field, and meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) guidance standards. The information in the FOG may be: 1) adopted by counties and tribes that do not have a POD section in their emergency response plan, 2) used by counties and tribes to amend existing POD plans, and 3) used by State, county, and tribespersonnel to stand-up a POD anywhere in Oregon. The FOG assumes that POD staff will be working under the Incident Command System (ICS), which is a widely-used management tool for organizing and coordinating a response. This document is designed to address both mass dispensing of prophylactic antibiotics and mass vaccination of a given population."
