The Allergy and Immunization Clinic at the LUSHC is available to administer allergy injections and to store antigens for students. There is no allergy testing done at LUSHC.
Allergy injections are administered on a walk-in basis. However, if you are a new student, an appointment should be made for your first injection. Students must bring their own allergy medicine (clearly labeled) with complete instructions. Our refrigerator is available to store students’ antigens, however students are responsible for ordering, receiving, and knowing the expiration date of their allergens. Allergens will not be used if expired. We cannot accept sera that are mailed directly to the Student Health Center.
A 20 – 30 minute waiting period after administering injections is required due to the possibility of severe reactions, including death. Strenuous physical exercise should be avoided one hour before, and three to four hours after, injections to reduce the risk of reactions.
Not all immunizations are covered under the student health fee.*
*Excluded immunications include any travel immunizations, B12, Gardasil, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Imitrex, Malaria, Meningitis, MMR, Polio, Prevnar (pneumococcal pneumonia), Tdap, Typhoid, Rabies, Yellow Fever, Zostavax (shingles).
