Allergy, Immunizations & Travel Clinic

Allergy, Immunization & Travel Clinic

The Allergy, Immunization, and Travel (AIT) Clinic provides allergy shots, immunizations and international travel consultations for the campus community. We also assist with immunizations and TB testing required by academic programs and/or employment.

 

Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) Vaccine

All students must provide documentation of two (2) MMR vaccinations to the health center in order to enroll for classes.

Records can be submitted:

    • In-person at the clinic
    • By fax to (479) 575-7789
    • By email to immu@uark.edu 

 Records can be obtained from private physician’s office, high school transcripts, or the Arkansas Department of Health immunization database (Arkansas high school students only).

Students can also receive the MMR vaccine at the Allergy, Immunization, and Travel Clinic.

 

  • Meningitis Vaccines (Menactra or Menveo, & Trumenba) - immunization is recommended if not previously immunized or if immunized before the age of 16.

  • Tdap Booster (Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis)

  • Hepatitis B Series– three (3) shots over a 6-month period

  • Influenza (annual flu shots recommended)

  • Gardasil (HPV Series: Human Papilloma Virus) three (3) shots over a 6-month period

 

Tuberculosis Screening

Tuberculosis screenings are available using the T-Spot test only. The cost of the screening is $60.

 

Allergy Injections

The clinic also administers allergy desensitization injections for students and spouses of students. The health center does not perform allergy testing or prepare extract. The cost of allergy injections is $15.00 for one, $20.00/shot for two or more.

Allergy Injection Guidelines:

    • Documentation/instructions from your Allergist is required. Make sure your name and I.D. number is on your extract.
    • Refrigerated storage space is available in the allergy clinic.
    • A minimum 20-minute observation period is required after each injection.
    • Reactions: Local reactions (redness, swelling, soreness) will be treated by the allergy nurse or physician. Any serious reaction will be treated by a physician and orders must be received from the patient's allergist before further injections will be given. 

 

Travel Consultations

Going abroad? It is recommended that anyone traveling abroad receive a personalized travel consultation where you will learn about required and recommended immunizations, disease risks, and safety issues associated with your destination.

Travel consultations are $25 (and can be billed to insurance) and should be made at least four-week prior to traveling. Call 479-575-7723 to schedule your appointment.
