Health Services offers continuous care for students receiving allergy injections prescribed by an allergist. Students wanting to receive allergy injections from Health Services must present a signed a patient Allergy Injections Consent form at time of first visit. Students are to provide the physician orders as well as the medication to be injected.
If you are just starting injections, we are unable to give your first allergy injection. Please have your allergist give this in their office prior to coming to school. In addition, we are unable to give an injection to returning students who have not continued to receive allergy shots throughout the summer at the allergist's office.
Allergy injections are given only by appointment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Appointments may be scheduled through myHealthPortal or by calling 651-962-6750.
These appointments require a 20-minute waiting period following injection.
Students must have an Epi Pen in their possession at the time of allergy injection and carry it with them throughout the day. If an Epi Pen is not brought to the clinic appointment, rescheduling will be required.
Students are responsible for having their allergy vials shipped to Health Services and back to their allergist's office during academic breaks.
