The DuPage County Health Department is pleased to provide DuPage County schools with resources to implement the Illinois Emergency Epinephrine Act. With life-threatening allergies among children on the rise, this new law permits Illinois schools to keep on hand a supply of potentially life-saving epinephrine auto-injectors, more commonly known as "EpiPens."
If your school would like to request prescriptions through the DuPage County Health Department, please complete the Prescription for Undesignated Epinephrine and Standing Order for the Administration of School Supplied (Undesignated) Epinephrine Auto-Injectors forms with your school district/school information. Email the completed forms to Bev Govednik, School Health Supervisor. These completed forms will be signed by our Medical Officer and then sent back to your school.
