Blood draw phobia

I'm afraid I will get infected for HIV while testing for HIV. During my second blood draw, I asked them to use new needles which they did, but the fear now is about how clean are the vials they use to collect my blood? What if they use infected vials with viruses on them already and when the needles enters into my veins, the virus also enter my body?? I know this sounds irrational, but I want to know during blood draw, is there any mechanism in which the fluids only goes one way (from your body to the vials) but not the other way? I mean, how can I be sure 100% that the blood won't back flow into my body through the needle?
