Junior Epipen Shortage

Posted on November 27th, 2018

As some parents may already be aware, there has been a shortage of Junior Epipen brand adrenalin auto-injection devices. Current indications are that this disruption to supply is likely to last for some months.

The guidance to parents remains for them to follow the normal procedure of replacing their child’s Epipen only when it expires.

In the meantime, the NHS has been in communication with the manufacturers of this and similar products to address the shortages and assess the potential risks to younger patients which might arise from either using alternative or out of date products.

They have issued a guidance note which can be accessed by clicking on this link.
