An article about influenza vaccination this past week in The Telegraph carried this image - presumably standard stock material - of a patient receiving an injection from a nurse:
The nurse/model's finger positions indicate that this is an injection, not a phlebotomy, but the needle's position in the antecubital fossa is the location for drawing blood from a large vein. Vaccine and medication injections are typically injected into major muscle groups like the deltoid.
To anyone with a medical background (or a modicum of experience with medical care) this image should be totally cringeworthy.
