Like many, many people, this affects us since both sets of my son’s Auvi-Qs were part of this recall. From our understanding as of right now, we are asked to get alternate epinephrine devices (other than Auvi-Q) then follow the information on how to get reimbursed.
“Auvi‑Q is one of three epinephrine auto‑injectors available in the U.S. The other two are EpiPen® and Adrenaclick®. “
