Health service personnel will, in cooperation with their private doctor, help students continue ongoing allergy treatments by providing shots for immunotherapy. Your doctor must send the prescribed serum, with clearly written instructions for the administration of the serum. Appointments are needed for allergy shots. A health care provider must be in attendance when allergy injections are given. It is the student’s responsibility to keep track of his/her injection schedule and to receive injections when due. Reproductive health, gender issues, sexual identities and disease prevention are important topics; we can help students negotiate the maze of sexual health matters by providing education, confidential testing and counseling as needed.
The Torrey Center offers a limited supply of prescriptions and some over-the-counter medications. Most often, a prescription will be written to be filled at a local pharmacy.
