Clinton IL – Living near a nuclear
power plant can mean several risks.
Now there will be a free way for those
residents to receive better protection. Soon thousands of homes throughout Illinois will receive
vouchers that they can redeem for non-prescription pills.
The Potassium Iodine pills could protect
the thyroid from radiation from a nuclear accident. About 60 thousand houses will
receive vouchers by mail in two to three weeks.
Families can redeem them for a two day
supply at participating Walgreens.
