The Middlebury Local Health Office is trained and ready to respond to public health emergencies so that people in our community can stay healthy and safe. We work with local, state and federal partners to make sure we are prepared to distribute medicine, supplies and information to residents of Addison County in a health emergency.
During some public health emergencies, the Middlebury Local Health Office will set up a site where medications can be distributed to the community. The site, called a “point of distribution” or POD site, allows the Health Department to provide medicine to people who need it as quickly as possible.
We are arranging partnerships with private distribution sites. This allows an organization to distribute medicine to their own employees and their families. We are interested in working with community partners, both public and private, who would like to become prearranged distribution sites. If there is a public health emergency, these sites will be able to provide medicine to employees and their families to prevent infection or disease. This helps to safeguard business and organization continuity.
Are you a large local business or organization interested in becoming a distribution site? Contact our office at 802-388-5745.
