Welcome to the Allergy, Immunization, and Travel Clinic. Our staff is dedicated to providing all UT students with quality, convenient and affordable care.

Services Provided

Allergy Shots

UT students who have started an allergy desensitization program (allergy shots) with an allergist can have their injections administered at UHS. Learn more about getting your allergy shots at UHS. Allergy testing is not available at UHS.

Immunizations

Immunizations available at UHS.

Flu Shots at UHS
UT students, staff and faculty are encouraged to get flu shots at UHS. This by appointment only.

Entering Domestic and International Students


Incoming domestic students are required to have received certain immunizations and have the documentation uploaded to the MyUHS portal and approved before registering for classes at UT Austin. See the Immunizations and Medical Clearance Requirements for Entering Students page for additional information.

There are also several medical requirements for incoming international students. See the Medical Expectations and Requirements for New Incoming International Students page for additional information.

Travel Health Clinic

UHS provides information, physical exams, vaccines and preventative information for UT students, faculty and staff who are travelling abroad. See the Travel Health Clinic page for additional information.

Tuberculosis (TB) Testing

TB testing is available at UHS. Depending on the circumstances, a PPD skin test or a TB blood test may be recommended. Students who receive a PPD skin test are required to return to the clinic 48-72 hours after the test is placed, to interpret the results.

TB Test Results

Students who have positive TB tests will be offered an appointment with an AIT provider for further medical evaluation and discussion of treatment options.

  • Skin test results can be accessed and downloaded/printed by logging into the MyUHS portal and clicking on the Immunizations tab.
  • TB blood test results can be accessed and downloaded/printed by logging into the MyUHS portal and clicking on the Lab Results tab.

Administration of Injectable Medication

Many, but not all, ongoing injections prescribed by an off-campus provider can be administered by nurses at UHS.

  • Texas requires an order from a provider licensed to practice in Texas for a nurse to inject medication. The prescribing provider must complete this Injectable Medication Prescriber Form which contains the nurse order. (If your prescriber is not licensed in Texas, we can guide you to a local specialist or UHS provider to assist with the required nursing orders.)
  • Students must provide their own injectable medication(s).
  • Common medications administered by UHS include TNF-inhibitors like Humira and Enbrel, B-12 injections, Dupixent and Testosterone.
  • After the Injectable Medication Prescriber Form has been received by UHS, a secure message will be sent to the student’s MyUHS portal with instructions on how to web book a Telehealth Injection Clearance appointment. This clearance appointment is required before an appointment for the first on-campus injection is scheduled.

Low Cost Immunizations

Adults who don't have health insurance or whose health insurance doesn't cover vaccines can get certain vaccines at a very low cost off campus through the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Big Shots Immunization Clinics.
