Preparing for a Public Health Emergency
If the health department needs to provide medication or vaccination to the entire population (or to an exposed segment of the population), then they will set up a mass clinic. The affected public will be asked to report to the clinic to receive medication in an organized way, such as alphabetically by last name or according to voting district. Once at the clinic, individuals must complete health history forms, which will be used to determine whether they are eligible for the medications and to track medications dispensed. You can save yourself time by filling out the form and keeping it with your emergency kit. Bring the form with you to the clinic to bypass part of the registration process.

These forms are called NAPH (Name, Address, Phone Number and Health History) forms. You can download the form by clicking on this link.
