Response Preparation - Mass Medication

Mass medication distribution and vaccinations may be necessary for the treatment of illnesses. The Strategic National Stockpile was developed by the CDC for this purpose and is strategically located in areas for rapid deployment and usage. Individuals stockpiling medications in the threat of a disaster will likely have questions and concerns to be addressed and may use medications inappropriately in an attempt to provide personal/family safety in the threat of a biological or chemical event.
