Instructions for Allergy Immunotherapy Patients

The Student Health Service Allergy Clinic policies and procedures have been revised to be consistent with current American Association of Allergy, Asthma & and Immunology (AAAAI) recommendations and guidelines for allergy immunotherapy.

The Student Health Service does not sign forms from other allergy offices. The guidelines followed at The Student Health Service are listed in the Referring Allergist Agreement (PDF).

We require three forms:
  1. A “Student Agreement for Allergy Immunotherapy Administration” (PDF) form completed by all new and returning allergy and immunotherapy patients prior to receiving allergy shots at the Health Service (updated agreement required annually on September 1).
  2. A “Referring Allergist Agreement” (PDF) form signed by your referring allergist. Your allergist will need to review both our Allergy Clinic Policy and Procedures and our protocol for “Physician Management of Anaphylaxis and Systemic Reactions” before signing the agreement (updated agreement required annually on September 1).
  3. Administration of Allergy Immunotherapy Instructions (PDF)

You should print these documents out and provide them to your allergist to review and sign. We will not be able to administer your allergy shots until both signed forms are received.

Signed forms should be sent or faxed to:
