Chicago, IL Overdose Public Health Vending Machine Pilot

In Progress

Five vending machines provide free overdose prevention and hygiene kits at public locations. Every machine contains Narcan with items ranging from menstrual hygiene products to xylazine tests stocked based on local demand. Community members can request PIN numbers for the machines through participating organizations or an online request form. Chicago received CDC grant funding for the pilot as part of the agency's Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) initiative.
