Students who need allergy shots may receive them at Student Health Services by appointment, for a minimal charge.
You may bring your allergy serum directly to Student Health Services along with instruction guidelines from your prescribing physician. Your physician/allergist may also send allergy serum directly to Student Health Services with written instructions on administration protocol. Allergy shots cannot be administered without these protocol instructions from a physician.
Students are required to remain in the clinic for 30 minutes following the injection to assess for possible reaction.
Compliance with your allergy shots schedule is required to enhance the desensitization treatment and to help you maintain optimal health. After all, that is the ultimate goal of allergy treatment!

Anyone who is traveling to another country should be aware of the potential health risks associated with their travel. A travel consultation provides valuable, individualized information on recommended immunizations and tips on how to reduce your risk of injury or illnesses that are specific to the area you will be visiting.
Student Health Services can also administer the recommended vaccines along with providing safety and disease avoiding tips relative to your itinerary.
Consultations take about 1.5 hours and are available throughout the year by appointment. Please bring your travel itinerary and vaccination records with to this appointment.
Please schedule a consultation at least 8 weeks prior to your departure date for the following reasons:
- Several vaccines require sequential spacing of the doses in a series to provide the optimum level of immunity and protection
- Some vaccines must be completed within a specific time span prior to travel, both for the travel's protection and to fulfill legal requirements at ports of entry
- If medications are needed, for malaria for example, several doses must be taken prior to the departure date to provide the full therapeutic effect.
Please note that travel vaccines can be expensive and not all insurance companies cover the cost of the immunizations. Check with your insurance company prior to getting any vaccines.
Flu shots are offered at Student Health Services year-round. Additionally, Student Health heads out to campus locations to provide convenient access for shots at certain times of the year. For questions and cost information regarding flu shots, please contact Student Health Services at 777.4500.
Please wear short sleeves!
