Can the “spare” AAI be used in an adult?

No. The legislation only allows for the “spare” AAI(s) to be used in registered pupils, in whom both medical authorisation and parent/guardian consent have been obtained.

If an adult has anaphylaxis whilst on school premises, immediately call 999: if “spare” AAIs are available, tell this to the call handler/emergency medical dispatcher, as they can authorise use of the “spare” AAI if appropriate.
