Kane County Connects Staff 7/24/2023 7:00AM

Kane County's Health Department is distributing free  Naloxone​​ to the public as part of an ongoing community outreach initiative.

​Volunteers with the Kane County Medical Reserve Corps,  set up a booth at the Kane County Fair in St. Charles in July  where they gave out 528 boxes - or 1,056 doses - of Naloxone to anyone who wanted it.   The free medication is provided in nasal spray form.   Volunteers also provided training on how to administer the nasal spray.

Naloxone is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose.

Free doses of Naloxone will be distributed by the Kane County Health Department at the Kane County Sheriff's National Night Out event on August 1 and again at the Aurora Farmers Market on August. 17.
