AAFA Supports New Bill to Improve Safety for Airline Passengers with Severe Allergies

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) is part of a coalition that supports a Congressional effort to improve airline safety for people with severe allergies. The Airline Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act (S. 1972) would stock airplanes with epinephrine and train flight crews to respond to emergencies, among other things.

You can support this bill by writing to your senators now using AAFA's Action Network. Taking action is easy on our website. We will send a customized letter electronically to your senators.


Mylan Specialty has launched a series of new offerings available through the EpiPen4Schools® program to support the growing need for education among school staff about anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. Visit to find out more.
