On remicade, lab tests show low pneumonia, diphtheria, and tetanus antibodies? Should I do anything or be concerned?
I cut my finger soup can lid this am, taking out trash. Cleaned, iodine, baggage with antibiotic. Not sure when last tetanus shot do I need one now?
Maybe,maybe not: Any wound that opens the skin can allow tetanus spores access to create an infection. A rusty nail is a classic exposure but any cut could be a source.

Your work to clean and sanitize the area is a great first step, and may protect you.

Nothing specific: If you are concerned you have had too many, relax. There is no problem if you had 2- 13 months apart. There are rare folks that have allergic reactions to vaccine components, but these show up immediately like a bee sting reaction. If anything you will have good antibodies for longer than they would if you had just had one. ...Read more
