Epipen Discounts for Schools

The EpiPen4Schools program was created to allow qualified schools to obtain EpiPen Auto-Injectors at no cost. This access is important because epinephrine is the only first-line treatment for life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis).

Why Do Schools Need Epipens? 

According to food allergy guidelines developed by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, if you are experiencing anaphylaxis, you should use an epinephrine auto-injector and seek immediate emergency medical attention.

Carrying an epinephrine auto-injector does not prevent patients from having an anaphylactic reaction; hence, patients must remain vigilant of their environment at all times.

Free Epipens for Qualifying Schools

Each eligible school can receive up to four FREE EpiPen or EpiPen Jr Auto-Injectors in the form of:

  • two EpiPen 2-Pak® cartons,
  • two EpiPen Jr 2-Pak® cartons,
  • or one 2-Pak of each kind.

To help patients learn how to administer epinephrine, each EpiPen 2-Pak contains two single auto-injectors, instructions for use, and a training device (with no drug product or needle).

Epipen Discounts for Schools 

In addition to the EpiPen4Schools program, Mylan Specialty offers a discount program where schools can purchase EpiPen 2-Pak cartons (0.3 mg) and EpiPen Jr 2-Pak cartons (0.15 mg) at a discounted price of $112.10 each once schools qualify.

For additional information regarding this program please refer to the EpiPen4Schools website.
