Just a little prick, it won’t hurt a bit !” That’s what the doctor or nurse always says.

An extreme fear of needles (being pricked by them or by learning that they will undergo a procedure that involves the use of needles.)

And yet another way (more of the same :-) ) , but usually used in the medical circles. Hence it´s seemingly more formal a tad: needlestick.

Needlestick injuries are wounds caused by needles that accidentally puncture the skin.

Needlestick injuries are a hazard for people who work with hypodermic syringes and other needle equipment. These injuries can occur at any time when people use, disassemble, or dispose of needles.


And kudos for you Jorge Luiz, good answer indeed!

In addition to it here goes an example of use in a sentence:
You may soon be able to get a flu shot without the sting of a needle. Researchers are working on a new, needle-free flu vaccine.
