Mylan Announces Free EpiPens® for Schools Program

Mylan Specialty L.P., the distributors of EpiPen® brand epinephrine auto-injectors, have announced a new program allowing qualified schools to obtain EpiPens at no cost.

The EpiPen4Schools program allows schools to obtain up to four auto-injectors for free. To apply for the program, the school or school district must have a valid prescription for EpiPen auto-injectors and complete the order form found here.

Mylan also announced a discounted price of $112.10/2-Pak for schools to purchase additional EpiPen auto-injectors.

We at SnackSafely.com encourage all schools to stock epinephrine auto-injectors and for school administrations to train their nurses, teachers and staff how and when to administer the life-saving drug. Epinephrine is the only drug currently used to treat anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction.

  1. I read your notice regarding Mylan’s offer for FREE Epipens to qualified schools. I have found a physician to write the prescription, but I can no longer find the site to request the Epipens. Please information if you have it.

  2. I am interested in obtaining free EpiPens for both campuses in our school district. I have been trying to get someone to write a prescription for the school. I recently learned that in Minnesota, a school does not need a prescription to get EpiPens. Can you help me obtain EpiPens through your program without a prescription? I can provide you with the information about our law.
