Allergy Injections

The Indiana University Health Center (IUHC) will assist you in receiving allergy immunotherapy initiated by your Allergist while you are a student at IU. Your allergist will prescribe and mix the serum, order the dosage schedule, and either mail the serum to the IUHC or give to you to hand deliver to our clinic. We will store your serum in a monitored refrigerator.

Our allergy clinic requires an appointment for allergy injections. Please call the IUHC appointment line at 812-855-7688. It is our recommendation that you schedule several appointments in advance.  If you cannot keep your appointment, please call 812-855-7688 to cancel or reschedule.  If you do not call, a No Show fee is charged.  You can also schedule and cancel appointments online.
