Answer

Hello,

Your chances of getting HIV from getting hit on the head with barbed wire being carried down the street by a construction worker are zero! Yes, that's zero as in none, nada, zilch! Should you get PEP right away? Of course not! What you should do is spend some time reading the information on this site pertaining to HIV transmission!
