How often should you get a tetanus shot?

Booster every ten

Tetanus
After an initial series, boosters are given every ten years unless one has a dirty wound in which case the interval may be shortened. There is very little harm in getting an early dose. Tetanus vaccine is often combined with diphtheria and activated pertussis (whooping cough) vaccines. DTap and Tdap.

How often should a person get a tetanus shot if he works outdoors, sort of a park ranger?

I'd repeat every 5y

Tetanus
Effective protection depends on lifestyle. For the average person the coverage should be effective for 10 years if the primary series was completed earlier. If one walks in muddy streams, camps, hunts, works in the dirt a lot, I'd only count on 5 years before getting another booster.

How much do I have to bleed to get a tetanus shot?

Any break in skin

Skin
The spores of tetanus are similar to any bacteria in their ability to enter a break in the skin and begin thriving on the juices therein.As the germ spores begin to form an infection, it will eventually be able to make tetanus toxin and cause tetanus.Some injuries are more likely than others to expose you to tetanus, but any break in the skin might.A booster every 10 yrs is simple protection.
