Intravascular Injections at Miami-Dade Walk-in Centers

An intravascular injection is inserted directly into the vein which delivers liquid substances into the bloodstream. Intravascular injections are the quickest way to administer medications and fluid replacement throughout the body. It is most commonly used to address symptoms of dehydration when oral rehydration is not possible. Antibiotics can also be delivered through intravascular injection and are often administered when oral antibiotics are not enough to treat a significant infection.

How Our Urgent Care Can Help

You can walk in to any nearby UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center without an appointment and be seen quickly by a UHealth – University of Miami Health System board-certified doctor. All our urgent care centers are equipped to provide a variety of intravascular injections to assist with dehydration, certain bacterial infections, or various other illnesses and injuries.

Our doctors and providers will perform a full examination and ask about any allergies. If deemed necessary, after determining that there are no underlying serious medical conditions, a doctor will begin administering an intravascular injection. During an intravascular injection, an area of the skin is disinfected before a needle is inserted under the skin. From there, fluids are delivered through the IV drip, and the equipment is regularly checked for proper functionality throughout the procedure.
