    well, anywhere you give IM injections would be ok. i don't have a site handy, but the back of the arm isn't appropriate. the deltoid (remember the little upside down triangle on the side of the upper arm?) muscle is where i've been giving the flu shot at my hospital if i don't give it in the glut.
