Can birth control shots prevent a pre-existing risk of pregnancy ?

My girlfriend and i just had unprotected sex yesterday and 3 times last week and a few times the week before. She takes a pregnancy test tomorrow for a birth control shot. Will this prevent pregnancy still? or is she still at risk for having a child?
