    Re: Got myself injected

    I got/had a rabies shot/injection.

    I'll get an injection.

    The doctor needs to give you an injection.

    Although you may receive a shot, the person who gives you an injection does not shoot you unless they also fire at you with a weapon.

    My Taiwanese colleague, who despite speaking excellent English with very little accent, still occasionally makes errors like these.

    A couple of weeks ago she said something about leaving early to take her infant daughter to the doctor "to get shot".

    With a straight face, I asked her "Doesn't that sort of violate his Hippocratic Oath?"

    When she asked me what I meant, I said "So he shot your daughter?" to which she said "Yes, he said she needed to get shot."

    I said, "Might be time to consider another doctor or at least a second opinion."

    She said "No, he just said she needed her baby shots."

    I replied "Oh, so he used a small gun?"

    "Huh? What are you talking about? All babies have to get shot several times at different ages."

    I then made some comment agreeing that while regular discipline was essential in child rearing, shooting them seemed borderline abusive. At that point she asked me if I was stupid or just messing with her.

    I eventually pointed out that there's a significant difference in 'getting shot' and 'getting shots', one being far healthier than the other.

    Re: Got myself injected

    I would refer to getting preventive shots for rabies, or other communicable diseases as being "vaccinated."

    Re: Got myself injected

    Or 'immunized' - though 'vaccinated' seems to be taking over here.

    Re: Got myself injected

    The OP is in India. If you were bitten by a street dog in India, you would be advised to take a course of anti-rabies injections.

    Re: Got myself injected

    "I will get an injection tommorow". Is this correct? If I want to use this sentence but with "shot" then, what I have to say? "I have to get shot tommorow" it seems incorrect as you all told me and what about these sentences "my daughter needs to get shot(we need to use shot, if we are talking about one injection, right?)/ shots" or "all babies need shots/ injections"?
