Allergy Clinic

Log-in to MyJMUHealth to make an appointment.

New for incoming 2017 students - Allergy Extract Administration Form must be completed by a physician.  The completed form may be mailed with the allergy extract or brought to the UHC with the allergy extract.

JMU students who have started an allergy desensitization program (allergy shots) with an allergist can get their shots at the UHC during the regular school year. Charges apply.

Allergy shots are administered by appointment during regular business hours. Log-in to MyJMUHealth to make an appointment.

  • First-time students need to make an allergy consult appointment prior to beginning allergy shots and have the Allergy Extract Administration Form completed by a physician
  • Returning students need to drop off their serum 24 hours prior to scheduling an appointment to resume allergy shots

For your safety, you must agree to wait 30 minutes after your shot as a precaution in the event of an adverse reaction (itchy eyes, nose, throat; nasal congestion; tight throat or chest; cough or wheeze; lightheaded; generalized itch or hives; faint; vomiting; shock).

Each vial of allergy extract must be labeled with:
