No. Anyone who is doing a blodd draw uses a clean sterile needle. In all the blood draws I have had and I have had many they always used new needles and I watch them dispose of them in the big red bio-hazzard container. I have also have had some people who do the blood draw wear gloves or not wear gloves, rememeber intact skin is a great barrier against HIV.
