A voice when you can't speak for yourself
Pinellas County is rolling out the Yellow Dot Program and updating the Vial of Life Program.
Pinellas County’s Yellow Dot and Vial of Life programs give you a voice when you are seriously injured or impaired and can’t speak for yourself. Simply complete the medical information form and place one copy in your car’s glove compartment and another copy in a plastic bag on your refrigerator. Then put the Yellow Dot sticker at the bottom on the left side of your car’s rear window and the Vial of Life sticker on your home’s front door to tell first responders that your health care information is inside.
The information you provide will help first responders:
•Identify who you are.
•Determine if you have a pre-existing medical condition that may inhibit you from communicating.
•Ensure that your current medications and pre-existing medical conditions are considered during decisions made about your treatment.
Display the Yellow Dot decal at the bottom on the left side of your vehicle’s rear window. It alerts first responders to valuable health care information located in your car’s glove compartment or an attached compartment on your motorcycle.
Post the Vial of Life decal at eye level on your home’s front door to alert first responders to valuable health care information located in a plastic bag attached to the outside of your refrigerator.
