I didn't compare too many prices, but if you're interested in having a supply of potassium iodide,
it's much cheaper to buy the chemical and make your own solution.
Don't buy lab grade - it's not pure enough they say. This one is USP grade which means it passes
pharmaceutical quality:

Here is a page where you can find instructions to make the solution in proper proportions:

So notice that with 100 grams you can make over 7000 doses which will be an asset to your community.
And that for the same price you might pay for less than 100 doses when you buy the pills from some
companies.

I'm not saying you need this. That's up to you. I'm just saying it's good to be prepared. :)
