All the literature I checked says the doctor gives it. This may be because if the drug is given any way other then the way it should be, its harmful, or the patient needs to be monitored after the shot, or the insurance finds it one of the drugs it won't pay for unless given by a dr or nurse. If the patient can't get to the office because of health, its possible the insurance would pay for a visiting nurse to give it. The insurance companies change that aspect so many times I wouldn't presume to tell you for sure. Ask the dr about all options.
