The Pennsylvania Department of Health is distributing free potassium iodide (KI) capsules to residents living within a ten-mile radius of the state’s four active nuclear power plants. Potassium Iodide tablets are set to be distributed to individuals living near the Limerick Generating Station, Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, Susquehanna Steam Electric Station, and the Beaver Valley Power Station. Potassium Iodide is useful in helping protect the thyroid gland against radioactive iodine that may be in the environment. Residents can receive their tablets by visiting a distribution center or contacting the Department of Health at 1-877-PA-Health.
