Closed Point of Dispensing Plan for Hospitals

The purpose of developing a Closed Point of Dispensing (POD) Plan is to coordinate the planning and response actions of hospitals during a public health emergency requiring medical countermeasures (usually oral medication or vaccinations) given to a group of people at risk of exposure to a disease. This document is a simple template to assist hospitals that wish to develop a framework for activating and operating a POD within the hospital. The template also helps hospitals identify key roles in POD activities and outline strategies for coordinating internal response activities.
