Allergy Immunotherapy Services

Allergy serum and orders must be sent directly from your allergist. As part of our quality control program and commitment to patient safety we do not accept hand carried vials of allergy serum. In turn, McKinley will return your vials to your allergist upon your request. A shipping charge will be applied to your student account for the return of vials to your allergist. We do not release allergy serum vials to students.

Prior to allergy appointments being scheduled with the Immunization and Travel Clinic, we must have your allergy serum and completed Allergy Injection Therapy Orders from your allergist.

Travel Services 

By appointment only - The following have to be ordered in a travel consult appointment by a nurse practitioner (NP) at McKinley Health Center before they can be administered. You must complete a Travel Consult prior to receiving travel vaccinations.
