New Jersey – Stock Epinephrine Law
Status of New Jersey’s stock epinephrine legislation:
On Feb. 5, 2015, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed a bill (S-801/A-304) that mandates public and private schools in the state to stock epinephrine auto-injectors for emergency use. The law also authorizes school nurses or trained personnel to use those auto-injectors if a student is experiencing anaphylaxis. PDF Format
