Community Activities

PHNs across the state organize and host POD (Point of Dispensing) exercises as part of their strategic priority of emergency preparedness. Because flu vaccine is readily available through any number of providers (doctors, pharmacies, clinics, etc.) in Kenai, residents already have plenty of opportunity to get their flu shots. But with the emergence of Alaska's opioid epidemic, communities are struggling with increased overdose deaths. Narcan prevents overdose deaths. The Kenai PHN team opted to deliver Narcan kits to residents as a form of POD exercise this year. Check out the video - a picture is worth a thousand words:
