Hello Doctor,
I went for visa medical tests on XXXXXXX 15 and I cleared all the medical tests. In that test the doctor has gave me some vaccine and I clearly didn't observe the syringe and needle. From that day onwards I got some fear whether do I get any HIV. Please help me and give some advice.

Welcome to XXXXXXX

In all clinics vaccines are generally given with sterile syringes and needles.

In case of doubt and to remove anxiety, you can get your HIV test done after 3 months.

It is available free of cost at all district level Govt. Hospitals.

If you have further query in this regard, please feel free to ask.

With good wishes,
