Public Health Vending Machines

In 2023, Winnebago County was awarded grant funds by the State Department of Health Services to increase the availability and accessibility of Narcan and Fentanyl Test Strips via vending machine access. There will be two outdoor vending machines: one at the Oshkosh Administration Building and one at the Neenah Human Services Building. The Public Health Vending Machine (PHVM) will be stocked with nasal naloxone, fentanyl test strips, Deterra Drug Deactivation bags, and other public health supplies. The PHVM is a harm reduction strategy that can be used to combat the harmful impact opioids have had on the community.

Unveiling of Public Health Vending Machines coming soon!

Winnebago County believes recovery for everyone is possible. Part of this belief stems from our core value that each person matters and brings light to our community. We want people struggling with substance use disorder to know they are not alone, we care about them, and we want them to be safe. Decreasing the stigma of substance use disorder is vital to keeping people alive.
