Habif Health and Wellness Center offers continuous care for students receiving an allergy injection prescribed by an allergist.
Students obtaining allergy treatment services from Habif must present a printed, signed patient agreement Allergy Patients letter (DOC) and a signed physician order (PDF) as well as the medication to be injected.
If you are just starting injections, we are unable to give your first allergy injection. Please have your allergist give this in their office prior to coming to school. In addition, if you are a returning student, we are unable to give you an injection if you have not continued to receive them throughout the summer at your allergist’s office.
Allergy injections are given only by appointment. Students may schedule appointments to receive their injections by calling 314-935-6666, option 0. Appointments are available during summer (extended hours available during academic year) on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
These appointments require a 30-minute waiting period following injection. Your first allergy shot appointment includes an evaluation by one of our medical providers which will take an extra 15 minutes. Please make your appointment accordingly. There is a charge for missed appointments.
You must have an epi pen in your possession at the time of your allergy shot and carry it with you throughout the day. If you do not have it with you, your appointment may have to be rescheduled. Please keep it in your backpack at all times.
Students are responsible for having their allergy vials shipped here and back to their allergist’s office in the summer.
