Please don't worry!

Detailed Answer:
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Based on your history, cut with your scissors I think you shouldn't worry because there is no risk for hepatitis and HIV.

I suggest to apply antitetanous immunoglobuline if you don't have done the last 5 years antitetanous vaccination.

I hope my answer helps you.
