In brief: Hard to say
Though a vitamin, the injectable form of b-12 usually requires a prescription.
Unless one has a significant case of pernicious anemia, some type of bowel problem or bowel surgery and a few other instances, b-12 by injection can be sujpplanted by oral or sublingual b-12. You should know your b-12 level if you are concerned and be careful. You can mask other problems.
