Prepare and clean the injection site(s).
You can use:
Clean the injection site with an alcohol wipe. Let the skin dry.
Hold the prefilled syringe by the syringe barrel. Carefully pull the gray needle cap straight off and away from the body.
Pinch the injection site to create a firm surface.
Hold the pinch. Insert the needle into the skin at 45 to 90 degrees.
Using slow and constant pressure, push the plunger rod until it reaches the bottom.
When done, gently pull the syringe off of the skin.
Important: When you remove the syringe, if it looks like the medicine is still in the syringe barrel, this means you have not received a full dose. Call your healthcare provider right away.
Before you finish!
For your safety, pull the blue safety guard until it clicks and covers the needle.
Once extended, the blue safety guard will lock into position and will not slide back over the needle.
Keep your hands away from the needle at all times.
Discard (throw away) the used prefilled syringe.
Examine the injection site.
If there is blood, press a cotton ball or gauze pad on your injection site. Do not rub the injection site. Apply an adhesive bandage if needed.
