In a blood donation camp, I donated blood. To check Haemoglobin the official pricked me . I forgot to check if the needle was new. Am I at risk HIV?

In brief: No

The needles used for finger pricks are single use disposable needles.
A formally set up blood drive would be following universal precautions and safety protocols to help prevent the spread of illness.
