Allergy Injections

Vaden offers safe, continuous care for students receiving allergy injections ordered by their allergy specialist. There is a charge for each allergy clinic appointment.

Before receiving your first injection, we require the following information:

  • Allergist’s order, including duration of immunotherapy and the current progression or injection schedule toward maintenance.
  • Your specific diagnosis.
  • A copy of your allergy extract prescription.
  • Allergy extract vial labeled with your name, content, concentration and expiration date.

Plan to wait 30 minutes in the clinic after injection as a precaution due to the possibility of a reaction.
