Tetanus Vaccine: The schedule for tetanus vaccine: children - 2, 4, 6, and 15 - 18 months, then between 4 -6 years of age, with a booster every 10 years; adults not immunized: 2 doses given 4 - 8 weeks apart, 3rd dose after another 6 months, then boosters every 10 years. Usually given in children as dtap = diphtheria / tetanus / pertussis.
