The Allergy Clinic operates out of Student Health and serves the needs of UVM students requiring ongoing allergy desensitization injections. We follow the guidelines endorsed by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
- To participate, the student must provide us with a legible allergy regime from the student's allergist. The allergy regime must have clearly defined orders; a protocol for an alternative schedule when/if the student is late receiving their allergy injection and expiration dates on the serum and on the allergy flow sheet.
- During treatment, our nurse will inform the patient when vials are running low and will fax the regime to the student's allergist for renewal.
- Appointments for the allergy clinic are Tuesday 8:45 a.m. - 11:15 a.m., and Thursday 1:15 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.. Allergy patients are required to wait in Student Health for 30 minutes after receiving their injection. After the 30 minutes they will be seen by the nurse to evaluate any post injection reaction.
- Students who have paid the Health Fee have no additional costs to utilize the services of the Allergy Clinic.
