Vitamin B12 Injection

Vitamin B12 - Wesham Pharmacy, Preston

Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause a range of symptoms such tiredness, shortness of breath, dizziness, numbness or tingling in the hands and feet, mental confusion or forgetfulness as well as other symptoms. These symptoms tend to develop gradually however they can worsen if left untreated.

Vitamin B12 is an essential water soluble vitamin which is needed for the formation of red blood cells as well as the nervous system.

The best food sources for vitamin B12 are meat and dairy products. This causes a problem for those on a Vegan diet as it makes it more difficult for them to obtain it through their diet.

Vitamin B12 is an injection administered into the arm. This injection can be given safely by a trained healthcare professional and helps combat the effects of vitamin B12 deficiency. As vitamin B12 is water soluble any excess is excreted through the urine and it can safely be given every 3 months.

You are now able to obtain this injection at the pharmacy. The cost for the service is £25 and the appointments last around 15 to 20 minutes. You can book online or by calling the pharmacy.

Brilliant. I was on holiday nearby and left my prescribed meds at home. I phoned up and they were ready for me by the time I arrived at the pharmacy. Excellent service, wish it was more local to me!

Great place to have your COVID Vaccine - first class service, professional and efficient, even though I hadn't worn a top that allowed them to get to the very top of my arm easily to give me my jab! I won't make that mistake again 🙂
