Can flu shots be given in the Gluteal area?

They can be, but usually aren't. This is mostly because many

people get red and tender tissue at the site of the injection for a

few days after the shot. It is much easier to deal with that

soreness in a location like the arm that doesn't need to be sat

upon.
