I will try to stick to guidelines, but I have seen only a part of single episode of this series (It might be a movie too, but I have a gut feeling that it was a series). I saw it on TV somewhere around the year 2012, possibly. It was dubbed, so the original was probably released a little earlier. I don't remember much, but there was some kind of epidemy on Earth that required frequent medicine injection to veins of wrist. The part of the plot I remember was, that people were running out of this vital medicine and the main character was trying to find out, what is causing the shortage or how to stop the epidemy. I don't remember the actor, or how he looked exactly, but I think he looked around 30 years old. The medicine had very interesting and distinct name, but unfortunately,I don't remember it clearly but I think, that if I heard it again, I would recognize the name.
One scene I remember very vividly was the injection procedure. On some public place, there was a short plain column (pillar maybe, English is not my native language), maybe a meter tall, resembling those small fountains for drinking water you find in schools or playgrounds. Like this:
Behind it, there was line of miserable people waiting for injection. The injection procedure went as follows: You placed your palm on the top of the column, round metal thing appeared to hold your hand in place (the motion and the shape of this metal holder resembled visor on motorcycle helmet) and from the top of the column syringe needle went straight into your wrist and injected the medicine(that means, it went from the bottom of your hand). I remember the scene after, the lady that was injected has shown her hand to camera and the area where palm meets wrist was all blue and bruisy.
The whole atmosphere was very gloomy, it was in some urban area, everything was dark, dusty, people had those sad looks on their faces and their clothes had sad colours, for example pale brown, gray and similar.
It was live action, I don't remember any fancy technology or aliens appearing there. I think the buildings, interiors and attire were very similar to ordinary fashion we see everyday.
