How so?  Automatically?  My last vaccination, no.  But one of my blood draws last year, she hit the auto retract while it was still in my arm.  Hurt like a bitch.  I am not a baby when it comes to needles either.

Yes.  If you mean the one that they push and it pops out, injects and goes back in it's case.
