My dad's girlfriend is now taking B-12 injections and she has some new insulin needles that my dad used for allergy shots. She wants me to give her B-12 shots with these needles (the dose is 1 ml) Is it ok to use these small needles? Thanks

B-12 shots are IM......I've been getting them monthly for the last 7 years (pernicious anemia)....don't forget to pull back on the syringe to make sure you aren't hitting a vein before injecting. I get mine in the deltoid.
I'm curious, how does she get access to the liquid B-12? I can't find anyone that will sell it to a consumer.
