No, these things sound to be the imagination of an anxious mind.  First, HIV is not transmitted from a prick of any sort even needle.  Air is exposed to the item that pricks.  This inactivates the virus. The only ways that people get HIV is to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or share IV drug needles used to inject (INJECT) drugs.  Second, this likely didn't happen.

Same thing, pricks are not injections. The end is exposed to air, it is NO risk.
Thank you
