Narcan vending machines available to deter overdose deaths in Chicago

Chicago is trying to make it easier for people to get a lifesaving drug — for free. Five vending machines have been strategically placed throughout the city and will carry Narcan, the drug that can reverse an opioid overdose.

The pilot program was funded by the CDC with a $17 million dollar grant to distribute vending machines across the city. The machines will hold more than just Narcan including hygienic products including socks and undergarments.
