Cluster Allergy Shots
Rush Allergy Shots
After an effective dosage is reached, a patient will reduce the frequency of injections. Patients are typically on immunotherapy for 3-5 years. Over time, their visits to get allergy shots will decrease from 1x a week to 1x every several weeks.
Due to the increased dose of allergens given during the cluster and rush schedule, there is a higher risk of a reaction, though still rare. These accelerated schedules require patients to pre-medicate before the program begins to reduce that risk further.
The majority of insurance plans cover both traditional immunotherapy and these accelerated programs; however, some do not. We recommend contacting your insurance provider to learn what your plan will cover.
If you are interested in allergy shots, please schedule an appointment to discuss the best options for your care.
