Transportation of Allergy Extract
Q: I forgot my allergy serum/extract at home and I need it for the summer (being spent away from home). My brother now has it and can get it to me in a few ways:
- Travel on an airplane - he is coming to visit me. Can he travel with it and put it in a checked bag or does he have to carry it on by hand?
- Ship it to me - what are the protocols for shipping allergy serum?
A: The best method is to carry it by hand in a small cooler with some ice. However, we do ship extracts by mail without ice. If you put it in checked luggage it will freeze and will be ruined. The amounts are small enough to permit security to pass it through.
