The University Of Virginia Department Of Student Health offers an allergy injection service for students receiving immunotherapy ordered by their outside Allergist. The clinic is coordinated by registered nurses who are available to administer injections and to consult with your Allergist as indicated. Allergy injections are available by appointment only, Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. We do not offer walk in services. Please follow the steps below if you wish to receive allergy injections while at school. If you have questions, you may call 434-924-3915 and ask to speak with an allergy nurse.
Ensuring a smooth transition of services requires careful coordination with your Allergist at home. To begin the process, please print a copy of the Hand-off of Care form for your Allergist to complete. The information contained in this document will allow your Allergist to provide a summary of your care to date, alert them to the need to prepare your vials and records, and provide them with our contact information. Once completed, ask that they forward the form to us by fax. Your first appointment can be scheduled once the form is received. Your vials may be hand delivered or shipped to the address listed below. Returning students please note that the Hand-Off of Care form must be updated annually.
All students are required to have an Allergy Clearance appointment before receiving their first injection at Student Health. This appointment will take approximately 20 minutes. At this appointment, the allergy nurse will:
- review the records sent by your allergist
- have you sign a release form giving us permission to work directly with your allergist
- prepare your chart
- store your vials for future use
- review, and ask you to sign, the Allergy Clinic Student Agreement
This agreement will provide an overview of how the clinic functions and the ways in which we can partner to help you accomplish your therapeutic goals. Once you have had your Allergy Clearance, all subsequent appointments can be scheduled on-line.
