Medication centers and vaccination centers are opened during a public health emergency to dispense medicine to treat the effects of an illness or to vaccinate people to prevent them from contracting a communicable disease.
Many people will move through the centers and the planning you do will help move people through more quickly and efficiently. Signs and prepared materials can direct people through the process inside the center, help people find things like bathrooms or exits and answer questions they may have while in the center.
Planning will help save crucial time during an emergency.
