Communicating Changes to Pharmacy Operations due to COVID-19 DSCA Deployments

The Defense Health Agency has developed this digital toolkit to provide military pharmacies with the print and digital resources needed to make beneficiaries aware of changes to pharmacy operations that may occur as a result of COVID-19 Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) deployments. In addition to the images you'll find below, we've provided military pharmacies with 7 customizable print and digital resources.

To access these resources, log into milSuite and go to milBook.  In milBook, search for 'pharmacyDSCAtoolkit' (no spaces) to find the customizable materials.  Please note: You'll need a Common Access Card (CAC) to access MilSuite.  If you haven't used MilSuite before, you will be prompted to set up a User Profile when you first login

Background: Changes to Pharmacy Operations due to COVID-19 DSCA Deployments

The new National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness includes the use of Department of Defense resources to include pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and other federal workers in support of DSCA missions. As a result, Military pharmacy staff at certain installations across the United States are deploying in support of community COVID-19 vaccination efforts or to assist with the COVID-19 response in under-resourced areas.

Toolkit Resources

Please use the materials below to make beneficiaries aware of changes to pharmacy operations due to pharmacy staff deployments in support of the DSCA COVID-19 response.
