Allergy Shot Information and Hours
It’s our goal to make allergy shots as convenient as possible, with options to walk in or make an appointment, multiple locations, and weekend hours. Please read over the guidelines below, for a safe, successful allergy shot experience and treatment.
Allergy shot appointments:
Please note that it’s best to call and schedule an appointment for your allergy shots. Regularly scheduled appointments can reduce your wait time and enable us to track your progress or to contact you if we have to close due to inclement weather.
Before allergy shots:
Prior to coming in, be sure to let us know if you’re sick or “coming down with a cold,” experiencing allergy symptoms, or have been sick since your last allergy shot. We may delay your appointment in order to prevent overtaxing your immune system.
Also, if you’ve experienced a strong or delayed reaction with your last dose increase, you may want to take an antihistamine before you come in, and we recommend you let us know. You may continue with your allergy and asthma medication while undergoing allergy shot treatment as directed by your physician.
At your allergy shot appointment:
All asthmatics are expected to perform a peak flow before every allergy injection. Please notify us if it has been more than 10 days since your last allergy shot. If you experience any allergy symptoms or reactions following your injection, let us know immediately.
After allergy shots:
Once you have received your allergy shot, we ask that you wait with us for 30 minutes to be sure you don’t have a reaction. (If you cannot wait, you must let the technician know before you receive your allergy shot.) Plan on being in the office about 45 minutes total. Don’t forget to schedule your next appointment on the way out.
