The Anaphylaxis Campaign, a charity, teamed up
with the multi-award winning production company
Bare Films to produce #TakeTheKit. The short
film alerts young people living with a severely
allergic condition to the importance of carrying
their adrenaline auto-injector.
Do you carry your Jext® at all times?
In a youth survey carried out by the Anaphylaxis Campaign, a worrying 44% of 15-25 year olds admitted to not always carrying their adrenaline auto-injector. This is a concerning statistic given that anaphylaxis is a serious condition.
Don’t take the risk
We understand that there are pressures on teenagers to ‘fit-in’ and seem ‘normal’. However you should not allow the social stigma of carrying your Jext®, prevent you from doing so. To not carry your medication at all times is extremely risky and potentially life-threatening.
You’re not alone
Although it may sometimes feel like your condition makes you ‘different’ from your friends, remember there are other young people out there living with anaphylaxis.
You can read their stories, tips and find tailored advice for teens on the dedicated section of the Anaphylaxis Campaign website.
