Disposable...: I can only speak for the vaccines in the USA; however, here all vaccines are given with disposable needles that are not reused. I'd imagine that in your country, that is also the case - or at least the needles are sterilized before being used again so that risk of transmission of blood borne illnesses is negligible.
