Allergies and Asthma

man sneezing into a tissueIn the spring and early summer, the mid-Willamette Valley becomes inundated with pollen. We can help you find relief! All of our doctors and nurse practitioners take care of students with allergies and asthma, and our nurses in the Nurse Specialty Clinic are also able to evaluate students suffering from allergies and write or refill allergy prescriptions.

Allergies

If you have previously received a prescription for allergy medication from the Health Center, you may contact your pharmacy for a refill. If you need a new prescription or just want to talk with a nurse about your symptoms, call us at 541-346-2739. Often, we are able to address allergy concerns and recommend over-the-counter medications over the phone.

If you have been receiving allergy injections (immunotherapy) at home, you may continue getting your immunotherapy at the Health Center. Just bring or have your allergist send your antigens and injection schedule to the Nurse Specialty Clinic. Call 541-346-2739 for details.

There may be times during the school year when you will need to take your antigens home for school breaks and other occasions.
