ACMC offers Allergy Shot Clinic

Hospital news | Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Ashtabula County patients who suffer from allergies now have another resource for finding relief – the allergy shot clinic at Ashtabula County Medical Center.

Allergy shots are a good treatment option for anyone who cannot take allergy medication or for whom allergy medication is ineffective. Allergy shots can help control seasonal allergies (such as pollen, ragweed, or grass), indoor allergens (such as pet dander, dust mites, or mold); and insect stings (such as bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets).

Allergy shots are uniquely made for each individual patient. The first step in receiving allergy shots is to schedule an appointment with a physician in the Allergy Shot Clinic. Depending on how long it has been since the patient was tested for allergies, the physician may then order new allergy testing. This will confirm the allergy still exists and help ensure the solution in the shot includes the right combination of medication to give relief from allergy symptoms.

To schedule an appointment, call 440-997-6969.
