In brief: Neck Injection
I would defer to the physician doing your injection for this recommendation.
Depending on where the injection is done, what medication is injected, and what you pre- and post-injection symptoms are like will most likely determine what is recommended.

In brief: Few hours rest after
At the most a day after the injection.
You should be able to resume work ( full duty ) the very next day.
