I think I would be more trusting of your average infantry man armed with a cotton-covered swab than armed with a sharp needle...AFAIK basic training still includes the use of knives and bayonets, so sticking things into people is part of the job.
ID is a problem in the UK where there is no statutory requirement for it, and your name is, legally, "what your friends call you" but it doesn't really matter anyway. You can write out your own barcoded certificate while you are waiting, and have it copied and stamped when you are done - maybe with a photo?
Our happy soldier can service "voting booth" stations in turn and tell you to wait after the jab until his mate stamps your card and releases you, say 10 minutes later. Local clinics are already using transparent shields between the chairs in waiting rooms so one nurse can easily supervise a few dozen chairs.
Problem is that this needs planning, resources and commitment, three military terms that politicians do not understand.
