New arrivals receive a voucher for each person in their household from the municipal authorities in their new place of residence. They can obtain iodine tablets free of charge from a pharmacy or drugstore within the distribution area on presentation of the voucher.
People who have moved from a municipality within the distribution area may already have received iodine tablets. The municipalities must therefore ask new arrivals whether they have already received iodine tablets.
Parents of infants living in households in a municipality within 50 km of a Swiss nuclear power plant are also given a voucher for their child.
Municipalities within 50 km of a Swiss nuclear power plant can obtain vouchers and information material from the Swiss Iodine Tablets Office:
