What is a Point of Dispensing?

Points of dispensing, or PODs, are community locations where we dispense medical countermeasures, like vaccines, antiviral drugs, and antibiotics, to the public during a public health emergency. Read more about PODs from the CDC’s Center for Preparedness and Response.
