    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.

    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."
