COVID-19 Safer Working Information

Is it Safe to Receive B12 Injections?

Yes it is safe to receive injections if following the recommendations made in this guide to ensure maximum safety and protection for both technicians and clients at all times.

Our team of UK Registered Doctors and Nurses see no reason why Vitamin B12 Injections should not be provided to clients on a one to one basis where the level of risk is minimal.

For your peace of mind we have developed Safer Working guidelines that effectively enhance the safety of our usual, stringent practices.

Your Safety at all Times

  • PPE – Mask, Apron, Gloves & Goggles
  • 2 metre minimum distance maintained
  • Less than 20 seconds within 2 metres
  • Clients to sit facing side-on at all times
  • Clients wear disposable face masks
  • Step in and step out procedure
  • Minimal client contact/proximity
  • Breathing directed away from client
  • PPE disposed of responsibly

What are the Risks?

There is no way to offer a totally safe process where social distancing cannot be maintained in order to provide services.

By using proper PPE and ensuring that both you and your technician are wearing face masks, we reduce the risk of infection to under 1.5% if either of you were to actually have the virus.

This risk is much further reduced by the fact that you should be facing side on to your technician, who will direct their breathing away from you in the short time required to properly administer an injection.

To further reduce contact time we also encourage remote consultations along with emailed documentation where able.

Please note: The Vitamin B12 we use is a Prescription Only Medicine that is only available on prescription following a consultation to assess suitability.

VITB12SHOT operate privately to provide B12 in the safest and most legal manner possible through quality and good practice.

We do not and can not diagnose medical conditions or treat any diseases, disorders or injuries.

If you suspect that you have the COVID-19 (coronavirus) 

Step 1 – Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms 

Anyone with symptoms should stay at home for at least 7 days.

If you live with other people, they should also stay at home for at least 14 days, to avoid spreading the infection outside the home. 

After 14 days, anyone you live with who does not have symptoms can return to their normal routine. 

But, if anyone in your home gets symptoms, they should stay at home for 7 days from the day their symptoms start. Even if it means they’re at home for longer than 14 days. 

After 7 days, if you no longer have a high temperature you can return to your normal routine. 

If you still have symptoms after 7 days: 

  • if you still have a high temperature, stay at home until your temperature returns to normal 
  • if you still have a cough after 7 days, but your temperature is normal, you do not need to continue staying at home; a cough can last for several weeks after the infection has gone 

Anyone who meets the above criteria should not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Step 2 – Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if: 

    • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home 
    • your condition gets worse 
    • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, NHS online coronavirus service can be accessed via https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
Anyone who meets the above criteria should not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital.
Instead they should contact NHS 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
