Do all preterm neonates on antibiotics require weekly Vitamin K IM injection even if on EBM/ Breast feeds? If so till how long?

We do not administer vitamin K on a routinely basis, BESIDES the first shot given intramusc to ALL newborn infants regardless of gestational age.

(and we do give extra vitamin K in cases of cholestatic jaundice, but that's a somewhat different story)
