Synonyms of "Jab" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between jab and shot and injection ?
A: All 2 are alternative words for injection. You might also hear vaccination. They are essentially nicknames.

Injection would be more formal and we'd say this for any medical or cosmetic procedure e.g. anaesthetic or Botox.

Jab is a nickname that comes from the movement. Imagine a quick, light punch (a jab). Although doctors do it slowly, it still has this nickname 😅

I believe the term shot is more American/Australian. Supposedly it refers to a phrase "A shot in the arm." which people started using for these injections.

Saying any one of these is fine. To be safe, injection will always make sense.
Q: What is the difference between jab and punch ?
A: A jab is more like poking someone really hard and then bringing your arm back to you. A punch is with your fist and you bring your whole body into it. A jab is usually shorter than a punch and a punch is more powerful than a jab.
Q: What is the difference between jab and shot and injection and vaccination ?
A: Injectionとは「注射」または「注射すること」で、vaccinationとは「ワクチン接種」または「ワクチン接種をすること」です。Jabとshotはinjection(「注射すること」じゃなくて「注射」だけ)をカジュアルに示す言葉です。前者はイギリス英語で、後者はアメリカ英語です。
Q: What is the difference between jab and stab ?
A:
jab= blunt, using a fist or a stick. No blood, maybe bruise.
Stab=penetrate with something sharp, like a knife or fork. Bloody.
Q: What is the difference between jab and prod and what’s the difference between jab and prod ?
A: jab is to poke roughly or quickly, especially with something sharp or pointed.

"she jabbed him in his ribs"

and prod is a synonym (a word of the same/similar meaning) so it means to poke with a finger, foot, or pointed object.
"he prodded her in the ribs"

but prod can also mean to try a.d persuade / push someone or something to do something, to encourage them/it to take action
