If an event affects a large population (such as the result
of an aerosolized agent), public health officials might establish
large-scale prophylaxis clinics to distribute the appropriate
antibiotics to the community using the Strategic National Stockpile.
Notice of prophylaxis availability will be distributed through
Health Alerts and media announcements.
There will be environmental sampling among animal populations
going on at the same time as human interventions to assess the
spread of the bacteria in the local environment.
