To support children and young adults who may be at risk of anaphylaxis whilst away from home, the Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations 2017 allows schools, without the need for a prescription, to purchase and hold supply of adrenaline auto-injectors. Regulations allow the purchase of a reasonable number of adrenaline auto-injectors for use on an occasional basis and as required.
Orders for EpiPen Jr 0.15mg and EpiPen 0.3mg can be made through your local pharmacy. Please provide your pharmacy with a letter written on your school’s headed paper and signed by the principal or headteacher. The pharmacy will then send the request to Mylan’s distribution partner, Alliance Healthcare.
