About this course

A subcutaneous injection is an injection administered into the fatty area just under the skin. Because they give a slower, more gradual release than intravenous injections, subcutaneous injections are frequently used as a way to administer both vaccines and medications (for instance, type I diabetics often use this type of injection to administer insulin).
