If a public health threat from smallpox is identified, the state of Connecticut will initiate a call-out system based on a random lottery of first initials of last names of heads of households. For example, a family with the last name of Smith would be eligible to attend their designated clinic on the day that the letter “S” is drawn by the state lottery. This information and detailed instructions will be carried on multiple forms of media and communications. The call-out will be uniform statewide, with all health districts honoring the same “letter” each day in their mass dispensing areas. The family must bring proof of residence and identification, with driver’s licenses or utility bills, as well as arrive on the appropriate call-out day. All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
