WestJet & Pfizer Canada Partner For Allergy Awareness Campaign


WestJet & Pfizer Canada Partner For Allergy Awareness Campaign

To raise awareness of anaphylaxis, Pfizer Canada, Canadian distributor of EpiPen, and WestJet are launching a social media contest called ‘Reach for the Sky’, offering Canadians with severe food allergies, or those at risk of anaphylaxis, the chance to win a WestJet Vacations package for four.

According to a 2013 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food-induced anaphylaxis is reported to have increased 350 per cent in the last decade and severe food allergies among children in the US have  increased from an average of 3.4 per cent during 1991 to 1999 to 5.1 per cent from 2009 to 2011.
