EpiPen® Jr out of stock issues in early childhood education/care - 5 Dec 2019

For Schools and early childhood education/care (ECEC) centres 

ASCIA and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) have been notified that there will be no available EpiPen® Jr stock from 5 December 2019.

This impacts upon how early childhood education/care (ECEC) should approach EpiPen® Jr provision from parents/carers until the out of stck situation has resolved.

We also request that schools and early childhood education/care (ECEC) centres take into account the current supply issues, by

  • not requesting additional EpiPen® Jr devices to be brought to the school or ECEC centre for each child at risk of anaphylaxis, and

  • to limit the replacement of general use devices at this time. 

  • allowing parents/carers to bring EpiPen® Jr devices to and from school/ECEC each day with the child.

Parents and carers requiring documentation for schools and ECEC during the out of stock period can use the ASCIA document available here ASCIA EpiPen Jr Out of Stock ECEC December 2019
