Medication Voucher Tutorial

This video will assist you in printing out a medication voucher provided by your health department.  We created this medication voucher system to help you receive the medication that is right for you as quickly as possible.  To print your voucher you will need access to a computer and a printer.  If you do not have a computer and printer available, please contact a friend or family member who may be able to assist you.  If you are unable to gain access to a computer and/or printer report to the closest Point of Dispensing and public health personnel will direct you to a library, school computer room or to a kiosk where this medical voucher can be completed online and printed.  Arriving at the Point of Dispensing with medication voucher’s already printed is ideal and will greatly decrease the amount of time spent at the POD.
