In brief: Gloves

Unless you're dealing with notable trauma or some sort of airborne risk, this should be sufficient for your "typical" shot at doctor's.

In brief: Gloves

If the patient has other issues, the nurse has to take appropriate measures, like wearing gown and mask.
Just to give an injection gloves alone are sufficient.
