FEATURE ARTICLE: Storage and Accessibility of EpiPens®


Adrenaline given through an auto-injector such as the EpiPen® to the outer mid-thigh muscle is the most effective treatment for anaphylaxis. Administering adrenaline can reverse potentially life threatening symptoms such as shortness of breath or swelling of the face and throat within minutes.


Children diagnosed as being at risk of anaphylaxis are prescribed adrenaline in an auto-injector commonly known as the EpiPen®. Children under 20kg are prescribed an EpiPen® Junior, which has a smaller dosage of adrenaline. The EpiPen® and EpiPen® Junior are designed so that anyone can use them in an emergency.


If a student has been prescribed an EpiPen®, the EpiPen® must be provided by the student’s parent/carers to the school.


EpiPens® should be stored correctly and accessed quickly. Remember that in some cases, exposure to an allergen can lead to an anaphylactic reaction in as little as five minutes.


  • Epipens® should be stored in an unlocked, easily accessible place away from direct heat. They should not be stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • EpiPens® should be clearly labelled with the student’s name.
  • A copy of the student’s ASCIA Action Plan should be kept with the EpiPen®.
  • Each student’s EpiPen® should be distinguishable from other students’ EpiPens® and medications.
  • All staff should know where the EpiPen® is located.
  • EpiPens® should be signed in and out when taken from its usual place, for example for camps or excursions.
  • Depending on the speed of past reactions, it may be appropriate to have the EpiPen® in class or in a bumbag in the yard.
  • It is important that trainer EpiPens® (which do not contain adrenaline) are kept in a separate location from students’ EpiPens®.


Schools may consider purchasing a generic EpiPen® as a ‘backup’, particularly if there is no single, central, easily accessible location on the site. The dosage of a backup EpiPen® should be 0.3ml of adrenaline, which can be given to any student who weighs over 20kg. It should be clearly labelled as the backup EpiPen®.


Make sure the EpiPen® is not cloudy or out of date.


EpiPens® should not be cloudy or out of date. EpiPens® should last for at least 12 months and will have an expiry date printed on them. It is the parents’ responsibility to supply their child’s EpiPen® to the school and to replace it before it expires. However, a designated staff member, such as the school nurse or first aid coordinator, should regularly check the EpiPen®, e.g. at the beginning or end of each term.


At least a month before its expiry date, the designated school staff member should send a written reminder to the student’s parents to replace the EpiPen®.
