I know the syringe had a needle attached and a rather lengthy one at that - but I also noticed the following:
- Both Pences' had the actuall injection sight blocked from view viz-a-viz the first injection where it was plainly visible (CDC guy).
- VP Pence's shot - the needle went in very quickly (compared to the others or any other shot I've seen on TV - with a needle long enough to hit the bone.
- This needle length thing - usually (not always) done at an angle (hence length). I give myself a shot once/week and even with the much shorter needle (Subcutaneous not intramuscular) I do it (and also it is shown in the instructions) to do it at an angle.

This caught my attention, initially, via the endless TV news displays and it just seemed so much quicker than it should be and that needle, going in at that angle and that length. Also, I recently got my (possibly first ever) flu shot and it was nothing like what I saw (shorter needle, at an angle, done with some care). The shot looks all much like the needle was behind the arm and squirted (rather rapidly) into the air.

Looks can be deceiving. Either way.
