The Case for Private Medication Centers Whether by accident or part of a terrorist attack, the release of a biological agent such an anthrax could put hundreds of thousands of people at risk. People will need preventive medications immediately. The federal government will ship supplies from national stockpiles to Public Health, who will activate long-standing and well-rehearsed plans to dispense the medicine at numerous locations in the community. Private Medication Centers, operated by partners such as yourself, will be locations where individuals can access preventive medications from the national stockpile during a public health emergency. The successful setup and operation of your Private Medication Center will rely on detailed planning and training conducted ahead of the emergency. Private Medication Centers dispense exclusively to their employees, employee families, and/or clients.
