EpiPen® Junior Auto-Injector Supply - 17 June 2021

Allergy and Anaphylaxis Australia has been requested by Viatris to share the following information.


Re: EpiPen Junior Auto-Injector Supply

With long-dated EpiPen Junior Auto-Injectors now available in Australia, we have seen an unprecedented demand for the product at pharmacy level in the last two months. Demand has been up to three-fold the normal levels, and as a result we have taken the responsible position and action to limit supply of bulk orders temporarily into the market. This will help to ensure longevity of supply.

Viatris has been working hard to ensure supply of additional EpiPen Junior Auto-Injectors, and these have been shipped to the various wholesalers and pharmacies nationally throughout Australia. We are continuing to transport additional quantities to the market and will continue to do so into the near future.

As with all medications, supply will vary by suburb and pharmacy. If you find your pharmacy is out of stock, encourage them to contact the EpiPen Hotline on 1800 931 625 to place a back order.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Sincerely,

Viatris
