Drive-Thru POD Planning Guide


The Drive-Thru Point of Dispensing Planning Guide was developed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) in collaboration with the Orange County (FL) Health Department and the Louisville (KY) Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness to address the challenges facing localities preparing for mass medical countermeasure distributions to populations during disasters. This guide primarily focuses on planning for Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) responses in urban or suburban areas that have difficulties meeting 100 percent prophylaxis coverage of their population within limited time frames using traditional indoor points of dispensing (PODs). It can, however, be modified for use in planning for other responses involving outdoor distribution.
