Allergy Injection Appointment Information

  • A nurse will follow your physician’s instructions for administering allergy injections. If the instructions are unclear or if you are late for your injection, your physician will be contacted.
  • You must report to the nurse any current illness or any prescription or non-prescription medications you are currently taking prior to receipt of an injection.
  • You are required to wait 20 minutes after an injection. Nearly all serious reactions begin within 5-20 minutes after the injection is given. Inform the nurse immediately if you are having any itching, hives, coughing, sneezing, tightness in the chest or throat, wheezing, or difficulty breathing. If you have any of these symptoms after your departure, you should return to the Campus Health Clinic or report to the nearest hospital emergency room for prompt treatment.
  • It is recommended that you do not do any strenuous exercise for one hour before and one hour after an injection.

All reactions must be reported to the nurse before you receive your next injection. Local reactions of swelling and itching at the injection site: Please measure the size of the swelling (not the area of redness) and record the length of time the swelling lasts or stop by our office and let our staff make an assessment.

Campus Health Clinic FAQs

Does the Campus Health Clinic offer birth control?

We do not have samples of birth control. However, if you have a current PAP test done at our clinic, or have a normal pap test and have established care with the Nurse Practitioner, we can give a prescription for your birth control. This prescription can be filled at a pharmacy of your choice. If you do not have a current PAP test, you can schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to have this done. We usually will give you a prescription for a year supply for your birth control. We also test and treat STD’s and perform/teach self-breast exams. If your PAP is abnormal, we will refer you to the OBGYN of your choice for evaluation.

Can the Campus Health Clinic store my medications for me?

The nursing staff at the Campus Health Clinic can store injectable medications for you. We have a refrigerator and locked storage cabinets. However, if the clinic is closed, you will not have access to your medication. You will need to plan ahead. If your medication expires we will hold it for 30 days for you to pick up, after 30 days it will be discarded/destroyed per policy. We cannot use expired medications in our facility.

Does the Campus Health Clinic give allergy injections?

Yes. You will have to schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner for an initial office visit to establish care. We will need a copy of a physician order from your allergist/doctor. Your doctor will need to mail your medication to our clinic or you can bring it to the clinic. We can store your allergy serum in our refrigerator.   Please note that we require you to wait 20 minutes after the injection to observe for any reaction. The Nurse Practitioner must be in office to receive your injection, so we do not give allergy injections from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM.

What vaccines does the Campus Health Clinic offer?

We offer the Hepatitis B series (series of 3 injections), Varicella (Chicken Pox, series of 2 injections), Menactra (Meningococcal vaccine), Tetanus and Diptheria Vaccine, Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine, Gardasil Vaccines (series of 3 injections) and Influenza Vaccine (flu shot).

Can the Campus Health Clinic refill by routine home medications?

Yes and no. There are some medications that our Nurse Practitioner cannot prescribe. You will need to schedule an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner to discuss your health concerns and medications. You may also call the nursing staff at the clinic with a list of your medications and the nursing staff will let you know whether they may be prescribed by the Nurse Practitioner. If we cannot refill your medications, we will refer you to a physician on staff with Southeast Health.
