  • In people with coagulation disorders, except for a specific medical criterion, small-volume intramuscular injections, such as this one, can be applied with reasonable security. The use of a 0.5 or 0.6mm (25 g or 23 g) fine needle and after vaccination, maintaining pressure at the injection site (without scrubbing) for 2 minutes, is recommended. In any case, the person vaccinated must be informed about the possibility of an hematoma at the injection site.
  • People on chronic treatment with anticoagulants, which are under control and have a stable INR, can receive intramuscular vaccination without any problem.
