Tetanus Shot 1 2 Years Ago
Does my son need a another tetanus shot if he stepped on a rusty nail he had a tetanus shot last 2 1/2 years ago my son is 6 years old and stepped on a rusty nail.
Is it safe to get another Tetanus shot if I already possibly had one a couple of years ago? I'm not sure if I had one or not.
Had back tooth pulled 2 weeks ago with slight infection. Now jaw is locked up. Haven't had tetanus shot in over 20 years. Is it to late to get one?
Got injured and want a tetanus shot but not sure when last was. Is it dangerous if it's only been a year since the last one?
Not a problem: It is in no way dangerous to get an extra tetanus shot. It is far better you get one if you were injured than take the risk. The only thing you may experience is a bit more soreness in arm if you had one recently - but that is all just local reaction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
