The most widely used immunotherapy treatment

Subcutaneous immunotherapy – or allergy shots – is the most widely used immunotherapy treatment in the United States. An individualized extract prescription is prepared for each patient based on their specific allergy testing results. Allergy injections are administered in a physician’s office and are covered by most insurance plans.

Allergy injection patients usually begin with a low dose/low concentration of allergy extract and build up to their maintenance dose over a period of months. Patients then continue with weekly or biweekly injections.
