Contact Redfern on your arrival to campus and set up an appointment by calling the Appointment Line at 864-656-1541. Allow 1 - 1½ hours for the first visit to meet with the physician, the allergy nurse and complete the paperwork. After that, a 30-minute waiting period is required each time you receive your injection. Bring your vaccine and physician's orders with you to your first appointment. Injections will NOT be given unless instructions are complete and signed by your physician and an initial injection has been administered in your medical doctor's office.
A registered nurse administers allergy injections for students who provide their own antigens with specific instructions from patient's private allergist. During the fall/spring semesters, allergy injections are given at Redfern by appointment only from 8:15–11:15 a.m. and 1–4 p.m. Monday through Friday. During summer sessions, allergy injections are given at Redfern by appointment only from 1–3:45 p.m. Tuesday and from 8:15–11:15 a.m. Thursday. A physician is always present when allergy injections are given. See paperwork that must be in place before receiving allergy injections at Redfern.
The fee for a single allergy injection is $14 for students paying the Health Fee and $18 for students not paying the Health Fee. The fee for a student receiving multiple allergy injections is $25 for students paying the Health Fee and $29 for students not paying the Health Fee. Fees will also be applied if you are unable to keep your appointment and you do not cancel your appointment within 24 hours prior to that appointment time.
