Okay, so I know this seems like a dumb question...but say you have a two month old for routine immunizations. There are 5 to give - DTaP, IPV, Hep B, HiB, and PNC7. So where do you give them all? 3 in one thigh and 2 in the other? Some two month olds are just so little. And I've been told that you have to do each shot in a seperate site, so if there's a reaction you know which shot caused it; but then where do you give them all? As far as I know the vastus lateralis is the only IM site approved for infants that young. I've looked in all my nursing books
, but I can't find an answer anywhere.
