Choose & prepare injection site
Select an injection site on the upper buttocks or another location with adequate amounts of subcutaneous tissue that does not have excessive pigment, nodules, lesions, or hair and hasn’t recently been used.
Cleanse the injection site area with an alcohol swab (not included with Fensolvi).
Using the thumb and forefinger of your non-dominant hand, grab and bunch the area of skin around the injection site.
Using your dominant hand, insert the needle quickly at a 90° angle to the skin surface. The depth of penetration will depend on the amount and fullness of the subcutaneous tissue and the length of the needle.
After the needle is inserted, release the skin.
Inject the drug using a slow, steady push and press down on the plunger until the syringe is empty.
Withdraw the needle quickly at the same 90° angle used for insertion.
Activate needle safety shield
Immediately following the withdrawal of the needle, activate the safety shield using a finger/thumb or flat surface and push until it completely covers the needle tip and locks into place.
An audible and tactile “click” verifies a locked position.
Discard used needle
Check to confirm the safety sheath is fully engaged. Discard all components safely in an appropriate biohazard container.
