OKLAHOMA CITY -

A 6 year old will undergo blood testing for the next six months after she was poked with a medical needle by a classmate at school.

The school district says it was a Lancet needle.

"It's scary," said Malachia Battle about the incident involving her daughter Monday.

Battle says on Monday, Edwards Elementary School did not tell her whether the medical needle was new or used.

"I just don't know what it was used for," says the mother, who was told the needle belonged to another student's parent.

Battle's daughter is taking blood tests for the next six months to make sure she has not been exposed to a dangerous illness.

"Today I call on the results of hepatitis," says Battle, whose daughter already passed her first of many HIV tests.

The school nurse does not believe the needle broke the skin of the 6 year old. Battle says it did and does not want to take any chances with her daughter's health.

"I'm in the medical field. I know the risks," says Battle.

The OKCPD told News 9 Wednesday it now believes the needle was new.
