This training addresses how to administer a subcutaneous (SC or subcut) injection. Injections are commonly used in health care settings to administer vaccines for disease prevention. A needle is used to inject the vaccine into the tissue layer between the skin and the muscle. Safe injection practices minimize risk of infections and non-infectious adverse events for both patients and providers. Health care providers are always advised to observe patients for 15 minutes after vaccination.
