We are excited to announce that after much research into peer studies and how other allergists are handling reaction to COVID-19 vaccinations: our office is now offering testing to PEG (Polyethylene glycol) and Polysorbate 80; two common additives that are often the culprits in vaccine reactions. This testing is not FDA approved, but it is being done by other allergy offices around the country and Dr. Lokshin is confident in the protocol that has been created. If you are interested in this testing, please contact the office to schedule an appointment with a provider to discuss if you are a good candidate.
