Allergy Injections

Habif currently administers allergy injections for students who have established this therapy with an allergist. Please note that we are unable to support Xolair (omalizumab) injections.

Habif Health and Wellness Center offers continuous care for students receiving an allergy injection prescribed by an allergist.

Beginning Injections

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.


Prior to receiving your first allergy injection at Habif, you will need to establish care with one of our medical providers. Please call to speak with a nurse to set up this initial appointment, 314-935-6677.

Allergy injections are given only by appointment. Students may schedule appointments to receive their injections (after their initial provider visit) through the Habif Student Portal. Appointments are available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday only.

These appointments require a 30-minute waiting period following injection. Please make your appointment accordingly. There is a charge for missed appointments. We may be unable to accommodate you if you are late for your appointment.

You must have an EpiPen 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.

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.

Allergy Vials

Students are responsible for having their allergy vials shipped here and back to their allergist’s office in the summer.
