To address continued shortages of EpiPen®, Pfizer and Mylan are coordinating with FDA to extend the expiration dates by four months of all lots of EpiPen® (epinephrine injection, USP) 0.3 mg Auto-Injectors and its authorized generic version currently on the market in the U.S. after a review of stability data. Patients should have confidence in using the products as Pfizer works to stabilize supply.
This announcement is based on a careful review of product stability data provided by Meridian Medical Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Pfizer, that manufactures EpiPen® Auto-Injectors and the authorized generic versions.
The affected lots, which have current expiration dates between February 2019 and October 2020, are listed in a table on the following page with their new expiration dates and can be found on FDA’s website and EpiPen.com/EpiPenSupply. The extension of the expiration dates does not apply to EpiPen Jr® (epinephrine injection, USP) 0.15 mg Auto-Injectors and its authorized generic version. Patients must continue to adhere to the manufacturer’s expiry date labeled on EpiPen Jr® 0.15 mg and Epinephrine Injection, USP Auto-Injectors 0.15 products.
EpiPen is a product that requires a highly complex and technical manufacturing and assembly process. Meridian continues to experience manufacturing challenges. These challenges are expected to result in tighter supplies and greater variability in pharmacy-level access over the coming weeks and will potentially continue through the summer months as seasonal demand increases.

Maine Summer Camps awards Halsey Gulick Award to Sue McMullan and Lisa Tripler
The Halsey Gulick Award was first presented in 1982 by the newly formed Main Youth Camping Association to recognize those people who have distinguished themselves by giving unselfishly of their time, energy, and resources to improve organized youth camping in Maine. Recipients are selected by their colleagues in camping for their record of public service to the camping movement in Maine.
Sue McMullan's career has spanned over a half-century. Guiding and teaching and empowering girls and young women. Her first decade provided immediate evidence of a future camping professional of the highest caliber. Whether it was packing out trips, serving as a tent counselor, acting as a head of tennis, or head of program, this vibrant addition to Alford Lake Camp came to camp in 1970 and quickly became indispensable.
Sue's commitment has also shared her legendary commitment to youth camping. From 1980-1982 she served on the Board of Directors of the American Camp Association, New England. She also served on the Board of Directors and as Education Committee Chair of Maine Summer Camps for many years. She was also a trustee at Waynflete School.

She has provided length and steadfast service on the Board, served as Board Secretary, and was involved in numerous momentous organization decision, such as spinning off MSC and MYCA, and hiring an Executive Director. Lisa has owned Kamp Kohut for 27 years, a co-ed camp that melds the qualities of girls' and boys' camps that serves each camper with both enthusiasm and devotion.
A labor of love, a passion since childhood, an enduring commitment. When Lisa Tripler and her husband Dan Rapaport bought Kamp Kohut almost three decades ago, it was a new adventure. Today, every day, the adventure continues.
