Immunotherapy and Allergy Shots

(En español: Inmunoterapia y vacunas contra la alergia)

Say: ih-myoo-noh-thair-ah-pee and ah-lur-jee shots

Imagine if you were always sneezing because you were allergic to something. Finally, you couldn't take it anymore and told your body to stop being allergic... and poof! It stopped! Doctors kind of do the same thing when they give you allergy shots, also called immunotherapy. The shots gradually help your body not to be allergic to something anymore. Usually, though, you need to get shots for months or sometimes even years to get rid of your allergies. But for many kids, it's worth it because they feel so much better!
