• Hepatitis A
  • Immune Globulin

How is IG packaged and how is IG administered to prevent hepatitis A?

Intramuscular IG is available in single-use vials (2 mL and 10 mL). It should be administered intramuscularly, preferably in the anterolateral aspects of the upper thigh and the deltoid muscle of the upper arm. Do not use the gluteal region as an injection site because of the risk of injury to the sciatic nerve.
