Typically, allergy vials are shipped unrefrigerated. They are usually stored in a refirgerator to prevent gradual loss of potency over weeks. I doubt that they are spoiled - HOWEVER, I would definitely check with your allergist - tell them of the circumstances before you get any more shots for these vials.
