Wipe the area clean then swab with alcohol before giving the injection.

you dont even need to. Livestock owners usually just inject without the wiping. Ive never heard of an infection from injection site of a norma healthyl animal.

When with the petting zoo they had us swab with alcohol but no cleaning first. If you're paranoid cleaning the dirt away first would make you feel better though.

PS, if you've not given a shot before have your vet show you how. It can really help to do some of these things yourself so you don't always have to wait for the vet or drive to the vet.
