VA Allergies & Adverse Reactions Learn More...

VA Allergies & Adverse Reactions is a feature designed to help you keep all your allergy information in a single, secure, accessible location. This feature documents your allergies, causes and reactions when they happen. Your health care teams, VA and non-VA, should have a complete record of all your allergies. You can use this feature to share that information with them.

An Allergy and/or Adverse Reaction can come from:

  • Something that you touch

  • Something that you eat

  • A medication

  • Something you breathe in, like latex or mold or

  • An insect or other animal bite

If you are a My HealtheVet registered user, you can self-enter your allergy information. If you have an Advanced or Premium account, you may view your VA Allergies & Adverse Reactions. This is information entered in your VA health record by your health care team. You may also view a blend of both your self-entered and VA allergy information. This gives you your information in one place.
