NAB: Why isn't there a pollen counter where I live?

The NAB is aware that some areas don't have certified pollen counters and is working to add more counters. Counters are specially trained and certified allied health workers who spend approximately two hours a day, three times a week counting pollen. They must work under the direction of an allergist. The NAB will continue its efforts to enlist additional counters so that most areas of the country can be served.

If you know an allergist in your area who would be interested in becoming a pollen counter, the doctor should contact the National Allergy Bureau at 414-272-6071 or at
