Vitamin B12 Supplementation

Vitamin B12 Supplementation

How Does It Work?

Vitamin B12 supplementation*, delivered by injection, by our specially trained pharmacists just like the flu jab! This is a service for everyone, but especially for those that follow a plant-based diet as it is a dietary recommendation for vegans and vegetarians to supplement with iron, vitamin D and vitamin B12.

Administering a dose of B12 by intramuscular injection is a more efficient way of delivering the vitamin to the body, as it bypasses the inefficiency of the gut. This can help to remedy symptoms sooner and prevent them from arising in the longer term. Symptoms of low B12 levels can include:

  • Lethargy (lack of energy)
  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • Cognitive dysfunction (mental fog)

If you’d like to use this service you need to create an account, complete the medical screen and purchase a voucher on the VitaJab website. You then just need to contact your chosen pharmacy to arrange a time slot. Your voucher code is redeemed securely in our pharmacies and this gives the pharmacy team access to the pre-populated service forms.
