Do you have PGDs for these?

Many PGDs mention giving injections as deep sub-cut in the case of bleeding disorders.

Personally, I don't see a warfarinised patientwith an INR in range as having a bleeding disorder, and I would give these injections IM.

Others may disagree, and most PSDs would support this. 

Giving S/C will not reduce the efficacy of the vaccine, though it may increase the risk of localised reactions.

This is just my opinion and not an instruction. T&E x
