Good news, New Jersey! Governor Christie has signed a bill into law expanding access to epinephrine auto-injectors in public places.
What does this mean for you?
Under the law, a person who has completed a training program will be allowed to give epinephrine to anyone experiencing a severe allergic reaction, or anaphylaxis. Certain public places and businesses (such as restaurants, amusement parks, theaters, camps, etc.) will be allowed to have auto-injectors available for allergy emergencies.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America reminds you to always carry two of your own epinephrine auto-injectors at all times.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our Call to Action! Your phone calls and letters to the governor's office made this law possible - the 19th such law in the U.S.
Together, we're improving lives for those with severe allergies!
