Does your child use an Epipen? You’ll want to read this!

In case you didn’t know, there’s an Epipen shortage, but one company is working to make sure kids have the lifesaving medicine.

The shortage is due to Pfizer having manufacturing delays at the only plant (in St. Louis) that makes the product. That’s where Teva Pharmaceuticals steps in. It’s generic version is not only available, but the price is reduced to $300 for a two pack.

If your child needs an Epipen, which is used when a kid has a severe allergic reaction, contact your doctor. Typically children need one kept at school and one at home.
