There are allergy shots which can be administered by Board Certified Allergists who have skin tested you and have found you to be allergic to the pollen made by seasonal pollen producing trees and plants.
Yes there is allergen immunotherapy also known as allergy shots that you can consider. You should see an allergist and have allergy testing first and then go over your options.

Yes. Allergy injections are quite effective for seasonal allergies. Depending on your geographic location, you can see an allergist who will evaluate you for the relevant allergens particular to that region. If medications are not effective or if you are having side effects, or if you are looking to reduce or even eliminate your need for regular medications, allergy injections (immunotherapy) is a very good option. Good luck!

Allergy vaccine is administered to an individual's refractory to medication use or develop comorbid conditions like sinus infection, frequent colds, no respiratory symptoms like asthma, etc. Best treatment is prevention, so, a proper evaluation geared toward determining allergy triggers at an allergist office will be helpful. And that is where desensitization therapy can be implemented.
