All new incoming allergy patients should start the process by contacting the Allergy, Immunization and Travel (AIT) department. The AIT staff will explain our services, facilitate the approval process through your off-campus allergist and collaborate with a Student Health Services primary care physician for approval to receive your injections on campus.
This process must be completed prior to the administration of any allergy injections. You will then be scheduled for an Allergy Injection Initial Visit in which you will receive your injections.
We do not administer first dose allergy injections when starting immunotherapy treatment. Your first dose must be given at your allergist's office.
