99% sure dropped injector, now what?

Started stumbling as I drove it, then kicked the Service engine soon light.

Idles poorly, stumbles a bit.

Tried my Mac reader but wouldn't pull anything up.

If a dropped injector is the case, is it safe to drive to the dealer to get codes scanned?

Lastly, I'd prefer to upgrade injectors if I have to replace one or two, what'd be the best place to get some injectors?
