In brief: Varies
Most practioners start with injections every 2 to 14 days initially and then once maintenance is achieved patients go to every 2 weeks and often every 4 weeks.

In brief: IT schedule
Immunotherapy is administered more frequently when starting, usually once or twice weekly, with the shots being spaced farther apart once levels get into a more stable maintenance range.
Depending on how well the shots are tolerated, it usually takes 3 to 6 months to reach levels that are therapeutic. Once the dose is stabilized, the shots can be reduced to every 2 weeks or more.
