Receiving allergy shots in Switzerland

Hello everyone,

I'm currently on a medical plan in my home country and I'm taking allergy shots (cat allergy). I'm expected to relocate to Geneva in a few months, and I need to continue getting my monthly shots.

Are there allergy clinics in Switzerland?
What do I need to do to get monthly allergy shots?

Thanks.

Your family doctor can do this.

Re: Receiving allergy shots in Switzerland

There a few clinics in Geneva and your costs should be covered by your health insurance. (90% after your franchise)

Your insurance company can likely give you recommendations. If you can bring your medical history that will likely help if in French or English.

Well certainly any Dr.s office or permanence can do an injection, but do they know what to inject? And the correct dosage?

I recommend the OP see a specialist who can run some tests and determine the best way forward.

Normally the specialist establishes that, then the shots part is taken over by the GP. My son is going through this at the moment.

From what I understood from the OP, this first step has already been done, so it’s pretty straightforward.
