scared and worried for blood borne infections
yesterday I went to get a tetanus shot.the syringe used was new. opened infront of me.but the medical personnel accidentally touched the needle, he WASN'T wearing gloves. I asked him to get a new needle but he insisted not to worry.for my satisfaction he cleaned the needle quickly with disinfectant soaked cotton,not very rigorously .now can I get HIV or other blood borne infections through it.NO VISIBLE BLOOD ON NEEDLE AND HANDS of the guy. and put same cotton at injection point after injecting that he had used for cleaning needle

HBV is a blood borne infection, so where is the blood? I think you are being paranoid: you assume
1. the technician must be infected
2. HBV must be on his hand (he most likely have all types of germs)
3. the disinfectant did not kill the germs.
4. you have no natural immunity whatsoever.
