Vitamin D Intramuscular Shots
We obtain about 90% of our Vitamin D from the sun and 10% from our diet. This important nutrient is necessary for developing and maintaining healthy bones. Research also links Vitamin D deficiencies to lack of energy, depression, mood swings, and some chronic diseases. And more recently, Vitamin D deficiencies have been associated with an increased susceptibility to infection and increased risk of COVID-19.
How It Works
Step 1: Lab Draw
Book an appointment or walk in to request a lab draw to determine Vitamin D levels and complete patient registration. Lab results take one to two days. If you have had labs drawn within the last 90 days you can skip Step 1. Normal range for Vitamin D levels is between 30-100 ng/mL, with optimal levels being 50-60 ng/mL.
Step 2: Schedule Treatment
If your lab results indicate a Vitamin D deficiency does exist, appropriate dosing levels will be advised along with treatment pricing. A 20% discount is available when Vitamin D shots are purchased in packages of three.
Step 3: Treatment
Visit IVme for your personalized Vitamin D IM shot three months in a row. Your medical history will be reviewed and updated accordingly at each appointment. Be sure to report if you have any medical conditions or are currently taking medications or Vitamin D supplements.
Step 4: Reassess Vitamin D Levels
Repeat labs four months from your first found of Vitamin D IM shots. If a deficiency still exists, Vitamin D IM shots would continue monthly at the appropriate dosing levels.
When fall comes and days begin to get shorter, you might find yourself soaking in as much sun as you can. You’re not alone. 40% of Americans are Vitamin D deficient. When you consider how important Vitamin D is to living a long, active and happy life, it’s no surprise that Dr. Jack, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of IVme Wellness + Aesthetics, ranks it high on his list of health priorities.(Click here to read more.)
Vitamin D Shots at IVme
Too often the day-to-day sun exposure and diet of many Americans fall short of supplying the necessary levels of Vitamin D to achieve optimal health. If you are serious about bone health, your immune system and regulating your mood and sleep, you might find Vitamin D3 Intramuscular (IM) shots from IVme help you feel your best every day.

IVme recommends administering IM shots into the ventrogluteal muscle, but for those uncomfortable with exposing their hip in the private procedure room, you can opt for the deltoid muscle. IM Shots take about 5 to 10 minutes.
