Point of Dispensing (POD) Exercises

If a serious medical condition were to suddenly affect many people, such as in the case of an outbreak of pandemic flu or anthrax exposure, the university may need to distribute medicines to thousands of people in a very short period of time. To accomplish this task, the District of Columbia Department of Health would establish Points-of-Dispensing (PODs) at community centers throughout the District. In addition to the public PODs, Georgetown University has coordinated with the Department of Health to receive medicines to dispense to our population.
