When I went to my class on how to give myself the shot, the nurse gave me expired syringes. I think if they aren't open they must be ok. but why put a date on them at all??

AS LONG AS THEY ARE UNOPENED AND WHEN YOU OPEN THEM THEY APPEAR IN GOOD SHAPE, ALWAYS KEEP THEM IN WELL VENTILATED PLACES AND NOT IN DIRECT HEAT WICH MAY RUIN THE PLASTIC THAT HOLDS THE NEDDLE TO THE SYRINGE
