    used to that

    Tom is going to give you an injection.
    -It's OK. I am used to that.
    -It's OK. I am used to it.

    Could the sentences in red mean
    I am used to being given injections (in general and not necessarily by Tom. Maybe it is the first time Tom is giving me an injection).
    ?

    Many thanks.

    Re: used to that

    The second speaker could be thinking "I'm used to Tom giving me injections," but my first thought is that they're thinking "I'm used to getting shots."
    I am not a teacher.
