Is it recommended to change needles after a vaccine dose has been drawn into a syringe?

No. It is also unnecessary to change the needle if it has passed through two stoppers, which is done when a lyophilized vaccine is reconstituted. Changing needles is a waste of resources and increases the risk of needle stick injury.
