Health Services Announcements
The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act
The Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) Act, approved by the South Carolina Legislature, allows school districts to stock epinephrine auto-injectors for identified school staff to use in emergencies for students with life-threatening allergic reactions. These Epi-pens are intended for individuals experiencing a first-time, previously undiagnosed allergic reaction.
Parents and guardians of students with known allergies should continue to provide Epi-pens/epinephrine for their children. These students will continue to have Emergency Action Plans and Individualized Healthcare Plans (IHPs) developed by the school nurse.
Every Aiken County school has a school nurse and at least two first responders who are trained in Epi-pen administration.
