How Long After Allergy Tests Do They Start Shots?

I had an allergy test in 3rd grade and just been on allergy meds now and none have been working for the past 3 years. I am now 23 and going in to get testing again and hopefully shots as well. I was wondering how soon after doing the scratch test they give you your first shot. I can’t find any details on it. I just cant wait to spend an hour in a room with a dog and not look like I am high and sneezing.

  1. It may take three weeks or so before they make the serum and you can start shots. However, when I had allergy shots, it was two years before I could tell any improvement. My series of shots lasted nine years, but it was five years before I had the maximum benefit from the shots. The shots really did do me a lot of good, but it takes time for them to get strong enough to help.
