Be Prepared: Getting Your Meds

Are you prepared for a severe public health emergency? Many people stock up on water, bread, and canned goods, but forget about their medication. Rx Response has developed a tool to help you prepare for your medication needs during a severe public health emergency.

Print a Medication Wallet Card. After you answer a few questions, this tool will help you to prepare fully for a severe public health emergency by generating a wallet-size card with vital information—including the medications you take regularly and any medication allergies you’ll need to watch out for during a severe public health emergency. You should store a hard copy in a safe place, and perhaps send a copy to a trusted friend or relative outside your geographic area for use as a reference should the need arise.
