Please Don’t Eat the Daisies
Health Departments Hosting Mock Exercise to Practice
Administering Vaccine to the Public in the Event of an Emergency


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. The Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments are inviting all to join in making this exercise a realistic one as the departments test their ability to dispense the necessary
vaccinations if a Hepatitis A outbreak occurs locally. If such an event occurs where many people are exposed or at risk, the local Public Health Departments are required to distribute no-cost vaccine within 48 hours and the location(s) offering vaccinations are called PODs (Point of Distribution sites).This 2 hour exercise is a shortened simulation of a 48 hour period of mass medication dispensing.
