I'll take an injection from a nurse over a doctor any day of the week.I think (my opinion only) that the way the nurse or doctor administers the injection affects your experience. For both my jabs, it was a doctor and he pinched a section of skin to make a lump and put the needle in.
There was the faintest of pricks. My medical professor friend said his nurse simply jammed the needle in without any finesse and it was a bit more painful than he thought it should be. He himself has administered thousands of injections and there is a right way and a wrong way
Then my neighbour had his jab and when the nurse pulled out the needle, he said he forgot to swab the area beforehand. Too much haste and not enough care
