4 year old son and possible transmission. Please answer!

Oct 21, 2012

My 4 year old son went to dr for his shots and after he got them I noticed the nurse had not used gloves. He was bleeding from the 5 shots he got. What are the odds that if she were to have had a bleeding wound on her hand that it could have gotten inside the tiny holes from the shots and would it have been enough to infect him. I didn't notice any bleeding from her but didn't really look well.

Response from Mr. Cordova

No risk
