i was wondering is a "td-10 year booster" the same as a tetanus vaccination?

Can be: This is one of many choices for the tetanus booster. The td contains elements that boost protective antibody levels for both tetanus and diphtheria. Some get the tetanus booster without, and some get the TdaP once as an adult, that boosts the whooping cough as well as the other two.
