Allergy shots are given only when a physician 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 from 9 AM to 11 AM and Tuesday through 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.
Amodest 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.
Allergy shots are given only with serum and clear instructions from private allergists. To ensure this, prior to starting injections you must have an Allergy/Information Form for the Prescribing Allergist completed and signed by your allergist. Additionally, an Allergy Immunotherapy Check List is to be completed by your Allergist?s office prior to the start of injections, and whenever new vials are brought to the Health and Wellness Center. Additionally, you are required to complete an Allergy Intake Form and Allergy Information and Consent Form prior to receiving injection(s). Allergy shots will not be administered until accurate complete paperwork is on file.
The above procedures are to assure safe allergy shot administration. We appreciate your compliance and cooperation.
The forms are available for you to complete prior to your first visit. They can be mailed to us or faxed to 513-745-3563.
