Allergy Injections

If you are a student needing consistent allergy injections, it may be possible to continue them at the Student Health Center. Our nurses are highly trained in administering these shots. We require specific orders from the doctor who prescribed the antigen, as well as for the antigen itself and an MD, to be on the premises during the injections. Prior to initiating the shots, you need to schedule a nursing visit at the health center to review your allergist's orders and our policy. This initial visit and subsequent allergy injection visits are offered for a reasonable charge with total costs dependant on the number of injections needed. Please see below for specific instructions and call 310.506.4316, option 3 for more information or to schedule an appointment to organize your care.
