Question immunizations in the arm? since when?

I recently took my 14 month old to get her shots, she needed 3 she recieved one in the thigh then 2 in the back of the arm. I have two older kids and they always recieved them in the thighs, I asked family and friends and no one has ever heard of getting a shot in the back of the arm for 14 month old? may i ask why???? OUCH!

Re: immunizations in the arm? since when?

For that age group they will often avoid injections in the thighs as they are new walkers. At least recently that seems to be the trend. I recall both of my children receiving their 12 month vaccinations in the arm, then at their next - 18 months - they switched back to the legs.
