Medical Distribution

Medical distribution: is the ability to acquire, maintain , transport, distribute, and track medical materiel (e.g., pharmaceuticals, gloves, masks, and ventilators) during an incident and to recover and account for unused medical materiel, as necessary, after an incident. These materials are supplied by the government, through the strategic national stockpile (SNS) in an event that requires mass prophylaxis. Prophylaxis refers to medicating an unusually large number of people in a short period of time. The Lee County Health Department will provide training to individuals to ensure they are capable of responding to such events.
