Did he go for a physical interview to obtain a job? Or does he have a job and had to go for a physical as he must travel outside the country for his job? The medicine that expires however does not make any sense!

Usually there is no injections and no health care professional are allowed to inject a patient with anything without explaining what it is and to obtain consent. If however it was for travelling purposes, it may be that he was immunized for example yellow fever.

It is his right to ask what 'medicine' it was and the reason it was given to him. If he is not satisfied with the explanation, he can approach the Health Professionals Council or even the police.

Maybe check with Cyberdoc but I have never heard of being injected with " something"  for a job ! Is it not possible that they took blood for various tests ? As far as I know they are not allowed to check for Hiv Aids without one''s approval.
