Mountain View Center Shot Room
There is no appointment necessary to receive injection therapy in the shot room. Shot room patients are taken on a walk-in basis. As you enter the Allergy Department patient waiting room, sign up on the clipboard and wait for a nurse to call you.
Mountain View allergy injection hours:
- Monday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
- Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
- Wednesday, 12 to 2 p.m. and 3 to 7:30 p.m.
- Thursday, closed.
- Friday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m.
- Saturday (first and third of the month only), 9 to 11:30 a.m.
Expect at least a 30-minute wait after injections. Always check in with an Allergy Department nurse before leaving. Delayed local reactions may occur. Reactions may include redness, swelling and warmth at the site of injection. Apply cool compress on the site and take Advil for swelling and warmth. If your symptoms last more than 48 hours, notify your physician.
It may take up to six months before your injection therapy begins to relieve your symptoms.
Tips for Success in the Shot Room:
- Space your shots -- no sooner than every 48 hours and no later than two weeks apart.
- Do not do any strenuous exercise for two to three hours after an allergy injection.
- Keep liquid antihistamines at home and work for short-term symptom relief between injections.
- Injections will not be given if you are sick with a fever, flu, chest congestion, etc.
- For all female patients, please notify the injection nurse if it is possible you might be pregnant.
- While on injection therapy, stay on all allergy medications as directed by your physician.
- Keep all your insurance information up to date with the Allergy Department staff.
- If a few months have lapsed since your last allergy injection, do not hesitate to call the Allergy Department as soon as possible.
