A Point of Dispensing (also know as a POD) is a location that the County Health Department can activate in an emergency to distribute medications to the entire population of the County. The "Gold Standard" for this task is to provide medication to the County population in 48 hours.
The Yolo County Health Department has developed this on-line training class for you to learn how to Manage a Yolo County Health Department POD.

Requesting supplies, managing fatigue, activation, and de-activation are a few of the subjects you will be focusing on.
