Giving vaccines to family members

  1. I have a ds who is absolutely terrified of needles. When he had to have a penicillin allergy test done he needed a whole mg of Ativan just to get through it. (He has other medical issues which can make his anxiety worse.) Last year I gave him his flu shot and although he was really scared, he did well. Now he needs his 14-year old booster and his Twinrix shots. Can I legally do them if they are done in my office?

    Thanks
