Allergy Injections

Student Instructions and Responsibilities

The Registered Nurses in the Wellesley College Health Service are available to assist students in the continuation of their allergy immunotherapy while they are away from home.

WCHS Established Guidelines for Allergy Immunotherapy

  • Allergy injections will be administered in our office with a physician present during the following times:
                                    Wednesday 12:30pm-2:00pm
                                    Friday 1:00pm - 3:00pm
  • Patients will be observed for 30 minutes after an injection
  • Emergency equipment will be present
  • Nurses and physicians will be knowledgeable in the treatment of anaphylaxis

To begin this service, students must schedule an appointment with a  Health Service Physician by calling 781.283.2810. Once Immunotherapy has started, students do not need to meet again with a Phyiscian UNLESS Immunotherapy has changed or stopped.

At this time the student should bring their allergy serum as well as their Allergist's printed protocol, and the completed checklist.

Please provide your allergist with this letter detailing our Allergy Immunotherapy Services.

*NEW STUDENTS* Call to schedule an appointment the week of  August 27th.

*RETURNING STUDENTS* Call after September 3rd to schedule a nursing appointment to  resume allergy immunotherapy.

In addition we have been working cooperatively with two area allergists who have agreed to see out students. Should you choose to inquire about receiving your allergy injections with one of these practitioners please feel free to contact them:
