In brief: Many sites
Intramuscular injections allow for slow absorption of the active components of an injection as opposed to subcutaneous which is usually faster. The most common sites are the deltoid, biceps, anterior thigh and gluteal region.
The anterior thigh is easiest to do yourself. Hopefully whoever prescribed this injection instructed you on how to do it.
