In brief: Immunized?

If your immunization status is up to date, you should have nothing to worry about.
Further, tetanus is usually a disease of deeper, penetrating injuries, not superficial cuts. Keep wound clean, and get a Tdap booster if you have not had one in past 5 years. Otherwise don't worry.
