To BEGIN allergy shots at UHS, prescribed by UHS, Schedule an Appointment.
To CONTINUE allergy shots at UHS, prescribed by your home allergist:
For safety, your treatment plan prescribed by your home allergist will be reviewed and verified so we have all necessary information.
Thereafter, you will meet with a nurse who will review your treatment plan, then you will sign a consent form before you receive your allergy shot.
You will need to arrange a supply of antigen from your home allergist. (UHS does not prepare antigen that is prescribed by outside allergists.)
For antigen coming to UHS, please INCLUDE the following information:
- The patient's:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- U-M ID number
- Best phone number
- Antigen contents, concentration and expiration date
- Instruction from home allergist including:
- Immunotherapy dosage schedule
- Date and dose of last shots received
We recommend the use of a cooler or ice pack for extended travel / transport of your antigen.
You can deliver antigen to UHS, or have your home allergist ship it (for weekday delivery, see Clinic Hours) with required information (listed immediately above) to:
Allergy, Immunization and Travel Health Clinic
University Health Service
207 Fletcher St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1050
Antigen will be properly stored and administered by our nurses.
When your antigen supply is low, we will contact your home allergist to request more. We will also fax your allergy shot record to inform your home allergist of your progress.
Some home allergists require that you visit prior to shipping us additional antigen. Please ask your home allergist his/her preference, so you can schedule visits over school breaks (e.g. fall, Thanksgiving, winter, spring, etc) if needed.
All services are by appointment. See Schedule an Appointment.
