PORT CLINTON

Residents living within range of a nuclear power plant have been told tablets to protect against radiation damage are still viable.

The Ohio Health Department and Ottawa County Health Department advised residents to keep the potassium iodide (KI) tablets that were distributed throughout Ottawa County five years ago. The expiration on the packaging is May 31, 2007. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration extended the expiration date of tablets to May 2009.
