Vitamin B12 injection - preservative free??

I was dx'd with Vitamin B12 deficiency in July. I tried OTC tablets - they did not work. I tried sublingual liquid drop - I had an allergic reaction. The doctor started giving me an injection. With the first one I itched at the injection site. With the second one I itched all over. With the third one I itched, broke out in hives and had shortness of breath.

Today I went to an allergist who tested me for an allergy to the perservative in the injection called Benzyl Alcohol. And that was the culprit. Now I need to find a company that sells the Vitamin B12 injection preservative free.

Does anyone here know of a company that sells it?
