Should I still get a tetanus shot, if my skin was barely punctured from a rusted metal jagged edge?

In brief: Tetanus booster
It depends on when your last tetanus booster was and how tetanus prone your wound is.
Your primary care doctor should be able to give you more fine tuned guidance on whether or not you should get a booster.
