Subject: vaccine injection site

I have read that there is less of a chance of a reaction if vaccines are
given in the hind leg, instead of in the scruff. When given in the hind leg,
is the injection given S.C. or I.M?
My vet prefers to give vaccinations in the scruff because she feels that
injections given in the muscle have more chance of a reaction than those
injected under the skin.
