You are asking about a zoonotic disease transfer Sam. You may want to take this question and ask in the human health forums.

I've been stuck with plenty of needles working in vet medicine and never contracted a thing. Honestly I just don't see how this could be a problem, but ask someone in the human health qualified to answer your question.
