Code: TH-2600.6525-600

Locations where people can receive medication or vaccine to protect themselves in the event of a disease outbreak (e.g., pandemic influenza) or a terrorist release of biological or chemical weapons such as anthrax, plague or smallpox. Mass prophylaxis of the public becomes necessary when the need for rapid, voluntary vaccination of a large population exceeds the normal capacity of the local public health and health care system.
