In brief: Allergy Shots
That is a decision for you and your allergy doctor to decide.
The average time frame is 3-5 years of maintenance therapy. Some people need allergy shots longer. Sometimes a trial off the allergy shots is another alternative to see if you are desensitized. The best way to find out is to sit down with your allergist and come up with an agreeable plan for both of you.

In brief: Allergy shot
I am assuming by allergy shot you mean steroid injections.
They are not recommended treatment for allergy unless someone is having severe allergy resulting in shock. Another form of injections that are given for allergy for desensitisation , this you can say is kind of allergy vaccination.It involves series of injection given weekly to start and gradually the frequency is decreased over years.
