Inform the nurse immediately if you are having any itching, hives, coughing, sneezing, tightness in the chest or throat, wheezing, or difficulty breathing. If you have any of these symptoms after your departure, you should return to the Campus Health Clinic or report to the nearest hospital emergency room for prompt treatment.
