A Point of Dispensing (POD) is a central place where you and others in your community can get medications or vaccines that will help keep you from getting sick during a public health emergency.

PODs are run by each city and town in Rhode Island using guidance from the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

This exercise is meant to test the POD plan to ensure that all RI'ers would be able to receive the treatment they would need in a public health emergency.

*NOTE: no actual medication will be administered at this exercise
