If our shot hours do not work with your schedule, some primary care offices will administer as well as government workplace clinics. Local allergists: they may require a visit with the allergist/PA and if approved then may receive your allergy injections only there. Consent forms are required for your safety before this can happen to make sure the office follows our guidelines. Your allergy care will still be with our office and we will continue to prescribe and prepare your allergen immunotherapy vaccine. Local offices include: Allergy Asthma Associates in McLean (Drs. Courtney Blair, Sharon Seth, Karen Robbins and PA-Bridget Schaeffer) https://www.virginiaallergyrelief.com/ make an appt with Ms. Schaeffer. A P of Metro DC in Ballston (Drs.

Always have your epinephrine device with you on the day of your injection. If you’re having a medical emergency, call 911. If you are having an urgent medical matter, please contact your primary care physician’s office or go to the nearest Emergency room or Urgent Care Clinic for medical attention.
Recommend scheduling a regularly set shot appt time, so your shot is prepared and ready. This will reduce your wait time prior to receiving your shot.
Please remember to bring your EPIPEN or Auvi Q . Inform the nurse or physician, if you are pregnant, have started a beta blocker blood pressure medication or have been experiencing any respiratory problems (such as cough, wheezing or shortness of breath). We do NOT recommend scheduling your allergy shot on the same day as your immunization (i.e. Flu shot). We recommend you wait for 48 hrs between them. Avoid AIT injections on days you are sick or just recovering from illness.
CLUSTER IMMUNOTHERAPY: is available for patients who are building up to maintenance for the first time. During the build up vial doses 1:10,000 thru 1: 100, you may schedule to come in at 9am or 1pm and receive 2-3 doses at one time. A dose is injected every hour, vitals are taken and patients are monitored closely for your safety.
