Students requesting allergy immunotherapy to be given by the Health and Wellness Center staff must follow a process that ensures patient safety. Planning ahead is key to receiving shots at the Center.
Immunotherapy will be continued for students who are established patients of an allergist, have been receiving ongoing immunotherapy, have no recent history of systemic reactions, do not have uncontrolled asthma, are not on beta blockers and are not requesting to receive insect venom.
Allergy shots will not be administered until required form are submitted and medical history is reviewed. The following forms are required;
Allergy Information Form for the Prescribing Allergist; Allergy Check List; Allergy Intake Form; Allergy Information and Consent Form. The forms are available for you to complete prior to your first visit. The forms can be printed from this site and mailed to us or faxed to 513-745-3563
Allergy shots are administered only when a physician or nurse practitioner is on site and available to manage reactions. Each student should set up a regular appointment day and time for injections. Appointments for allergy shots are scheduled Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 AM to 11 AM and Tuesday and Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM. Students are required to wait 30 minutes post injection(s) to be observed for reactions by a nurse before they leave the health center.
A fee of $15.00 for one injection and $20.00 for two injections will be charged and billed to your bursar account. The Health and Wellness Center does not bill insurance companies, but on request will provide you with the necessary paperwork to do so.
The above procedures are to assure safe allergy shot administration. We appreciate your compliance and cooperation.
