Responding to Disease Outbreaks

Emergency Mass Clinic Plan

South Heartland District Health Department is working with the State Health and Human Services the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and many local partners to develop an emergency mass dispensing plan, This plan could be activated in the event of a bio-terrorism incident or naturally occurring disease outbreak. For example if a case of smallpox were to be confirmed in the state or if an influenza pandemic were to occur, the mass clinics could be activated and the public would be notified through the Emergency Management alert system. These centers would provide immunizations or medications for everyone in the SHDHD District. Hundreds of area volunteers will be used to staff these clinics. Supplies may be provided from the Strategic National Stockpile.
