EpiPen4Schools®

One of the challenges of creating this Allergy Emergency Kit has been the prescription-only nature of epinephrine. Fortunately many states have passed laws allowing school nurses (or obligating them) to have a public supply of epinephrine ... that is not attached to a specific child via prescription. Mylan Specialties, to their credit, has come out with a program for school nurses to recieve their first two 2-packs of EpiPen® or EpiPen Jr.® auto-injectors free of charge, and then subsequent pens at a discounted cost of $112.10 per 2-Pack. This program will be used by many of our school customers. We provide the secure, conspicuous storage cabinet - this program provides the actual medication.

Please note, you should request prescriptions for adult-dose and child-dose EpiPen® auto-injectors. They come in pairs.
