When it comes to managing severe allergic reactions, knowledge and being prepared is key. Anaphylaxis is a rapid and potentially life-threatening allergic response triggered by various factors, such as foods, insect stings, medications, and more.1 Knowing when and how to use your EpiPen® Auto-injector is very important. EpiPen, which contains adrenaline, is recommended as a first-line treatment for anaphylaxis. 2


EpiPen is now funded3

Good news – if you're someone who could have a serious allergic reaction, you may now qualify in getting up to two EpiPen Auto-injectors for free.*


Why Two EpiPen Auto-Injectors? 4

Having two EpiPen Auto-Injectors is vital for your safety in case of severe allergic reactions, as anaphylaxis can escalate quickly. Sometimes, one dose may not be enough, and delays in medical assistance could occur, making the second EpiPen a potential lifesaver. For children at school or childcare, it allows one EpiPen to be with them at all times. For older children and adults, having two injectors ensures readiness for emergencies and possible ambulance delays, where a second dose might be needed.
