A member asked:

Is tetanus common in the us?

No: The pattern of immunization has reduced the frequency of tetanus in the US to 40 or less cases per year. These cluster with the unimmunized or incompletely immunized populations.

Quite rare: May be due to tetanus shots, but there is a time limitation to value, and best to re-inoculate after several years.
