Our Allergy Clinic provides a convenient location for the continuation of your allergy management and treatment for NC State students.
While we do not provide allergy testing at the Allergy Clinic, we will work with your allergist to continue your current treatment plan. If you suspect that you are suffering from allergy symptoms but are not currently seeing an allergist, a general medical provider at Student Health Services can refer you to a local allergist for evaluation and initiation of care. Students established with an allergist can receive their injections at our clinic. The Allergy Clinic works with your allergist to ensure your current treatment plan is continued while you attend NC State University.
Common Conditions That Can Be Managed with Allergy Injections
- Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)
- Reactions to Insects or Vespids (Bees, Wasps, Ants, etc.)
- Eczema (Skin Allergies)
What You Will Need for Your First Visit
To receive your injections at the Allergy Clinic, your current allergist must complete two forms: Letter to the Physician and Physician Order for Allergy Immunotherapy. You should also bring your records and serum from your allergist to your first appointment with the Allergy Clinic. After we receive your allergist’s instructions and the 2 completed forms from above, we can continue the administration of your allergy serum at Student Health.
Please note that this is a continuation of care, you must receive your first injection at your allergist’s office.

Costs of Allergy Injections
There may be fees associated with allergy injections. Please contact your health insurance provider to determine costs prior to your first appointment. We can assist you in filing a claim with your insurance carrier. Any charges not covered by insurance are the responsibility of the student. Students on the Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) can receive allergy shots at no cost.
