I agree with all the replies. Use treats to distract him. If the injection shots don't hurt and from the replies, it doesn't sound like it will hurt. If, for some reason, your dog still objects, even though there are treats offered to him, I would look into gloves that dog trainers (for guard dogs) use or something like that. I am talking about the material it's made of, not necessarily the same gloves.
I would keep looking for a solution if your dog is not in pain (so I have the same advice others have) or not suffering. I cannot do my dog's nails either. I'm one of few people who she allows to touch her paws and nails but when she knows her nails are getting trimmed, she pulls away and I'm not good at dealing with that. Even groomers and vets can't easily touch her, they need assistants or to restrain her in some way - muzzle etc. I have tried to help and we have done the treat distraction method but she will still try to get at the person trying to trim the nails.
You're not the only one with trouble, as you can see.
