Syringe Service Programs

Sterile syringes are available at pharmacies throughout Vermont without a prescription, although individual pharmacists may choose not to sell them. Syringe Service Programs (SSP) make free syringes available in several communities around Vermont. Possession of syringes on the part of SSP clients is not in violation of our state’s paraphernalia law. See below for location and contact information.
