Utah – Stock Epinephrine Law
Congratulations! Utah has a stock-epinephrine law that permits an schools to obtain and administer an emergency supply of epinephrine auto-injectors. 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:
