Shelby County Health Department Testing Their Proceedures

On the December 12th, the Shelby County Health Department will be conducting a door-to-door dispensing drill in order to test their capabilities in non-traditional medical countermeasure dispensing. They will be sending staff and volunteers out into the Collierville & Germantown communities surrounding Houston High (around 2800 households) to hang a tote bag containing an informational flyer, a sample (empty) pill bottle, and a survey with a pre-stamped envelope on the front door of each residence. They will be testing for time to deliver and also to get a feel for what the community thinks of this type of dispensing.
