    I am not sure what you are asking, but if you mean if nurses are giving injections in HK I have seen the nurses at a pediatrician do it.

    Registered nurses can do injections intramuscularly and subcutaneously, not sure if they are allowed to do intravenous injection though.

    Thanks 100LL and Eric J

    I do not have a HKID nor insurance yet, but need to get some intramuscular injections administered, and was wondering how I could find a nurse who would be able to administer these.

    And if someone knows how much these injection services would cost, that would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for any input!

    Suggest visit Dr. Chan, 120 Caine Road, Gd floor. Mid Level. His charges are very reasonable. If you have the medicine to be injected, his charge would be less than $30

    I am not sure what are you going to inject, either a vaccine or medicine, unless it is suggested by your own doctor, I will still suggest you to consult a GP first. Vaccine has to be kept under certain conditions.

    Thank you Oldtimer and EricJ. I need to have some fertility intramuscular injections so any registered nurse or dr. who can see new patients would be great. And how can I find a registered nurse in HK?
    thanks!

    Just go to any GP is fine. Just look up internet, get the phone number and ask for the price. It shouldn't be expensive.
    Nurses' quality do variy a lot here...
