Going Off to College?

Did you know you can take your allergy injection extract with you?

Patients going off to college in the Fall, who are currently receiving allergy injections in our office are welcome to take their allergy extract with them. Patients who receive venom immunotherapy, must be at a maintenance dose in order to take their extract out.

In order to request to take your allergy extract out, you will need to contact the college health center to see if they can administer your allergy injections. Some college health centers do not administer allergy injections, but they may know of a local allergist or primary care physician who would be willing to do so. Regardless of who will provide your injections, it’s important to ask what information their office may need from us, along with their address, phone and fax numbers and office hours. Be sure to get a contact name as well.  

Once you obtain the necessary information, please contact our office as soon as possible, to provide us with all the required information. It can take 2-3 weeks for the Extract Department to prepare your vials and necessary paperwork. We will contact you once your allergy extract is ready.

If you would like to pick up your vials, please keep in mind they must be refrigerated, never frozen.
