Georgia – Stock Epinephrine Law

Congratulations!  Georgia has an act in place for using epinephrine in emergency situations.

http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/20112012/116297.pdf

However, our job is not done yet. Each law or regulation must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency.

Allergy & Asthma Network supports stock epinephrine implementation in schools and provides education and resources to support a seamless rollout. For more information, visit:
