Problem Visit

Please do not use vaginal products for at least 24 hours before your visit. These products interfere with many of the tests that are commonly needed during an acute visit in the Women’s Health Clinic.

We cannot perform some tests while you are on your menstrual cycle. A urine test for infection or pregnancy can be performed in the presence of blood, but most others cannot. Should you need those tests, we may need to reschedule your visit.

Allergy Shots

Health Services will not initiate allergy immunotherapy injections. You must have already received your first injection of the serum from your allergist. Health Services will only administer the subsequent injections as ordered by your allergist.  

Health Services will provide allergy injections to currently enrolled students. Georgia Southern faculty and staff may receive allergy injections at Health Services after payment of a semester fee for this particular service.

As a patient of the Allergy and Immunization Injection Office, you have the responsibility to be knowledgeable about and to follow the guidelines we have established for that office. Students, faculty, and staff are required to abide by these guidelines and failure to do so will result in termination of allergy injection services provided by Health Services. Please remember, these guidelines are for your protection. For more information regarding the Allergy Immunotherapy Guidelines please click here.
