Vitamin B12 shots are the most effective when taken at regular intervals. We recommend once weekly for 4 weeks, followed by once a month. A regular injection schedule can be individualized. Facts about Vitamin B12 Aging means we absorb less Vitamin B12 from food. It is estimated 85% of us come up short of the necessary B12 from our diet. Absorption of B12 in food requires a substance from our stomachs called intrinsic factor, the production of which decreases with age. The American College of Physicians assumes that no one has intrinsic factor past age 70. People with chronic fatigue or anemia require regular injections of vitamin B12 because the oral form is unreliable.
