Department of Health Distributing Free Potassium Iodide

Harrisburg, PA – The Department of Health will once again offer free potassium iodide, or KI, tablets this year, to Pennsylvanians who are within 10 miles of one of the state’s five nuclear power plants. Distribution dates will be announced in the future.

“If you live or work near a nuclear facility, KI tablets should be an essential part of your emergency preparedness plan and go kit,” said Secretary of Health Dr. Karen Murphy. “KI can help protect the thyroid gland against harmful radioactive iodine when taken as directed during radiological emergencies. But it’s important to remember that the tablets should only be taken when the Governor or state public health officials advise you to do so.”

Distribution dates will be announced when they are determined.

KI tablets are available throughout the year at county and municipal health departments or state health centers located within the 10-mile radius. Click the map to the right to see if you live or work within the radius.thumb SSES 10MI Radius Map
