Doxycycline coming to a mailbox near you?
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a new authorization to allow U.S. Postal Workers to delivery doxycycline tablets to individual residences during an anthrax emergency. This would allow invidual families to get prophylactic treatment quickly, and without having to go to a central distribution site. This method has been tested as part of the Citites Readiness Initiative (CRI), and will be a part of future exercises in Minneapolis and the Washington D.C. area.
