Does Tetanus Vaccine Prevent Rabies
Depends: If you can't remember it is likely 10 years since your last shot. If activities like gardening expose you to spores you should consider a booster even sooner.

Getting the vaccine is a simple way to avid it. ...Read more

I have a 3 years old daughter. A small splinter (probably from a pine) sank into her skin. Is a tetanus vaccine required in this case.
Tetanus: If your daughter is 3 she has coverage from her tetanus shots/vaccination series during the first years of life. You need one every 10 years. It usually is a problem in adults as we don't get routine vaccinations. If she was never vaccinated that is another issue, and vaccination is appropriate. ...Read more
