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.
