Hi.... is a Tetanus shot recommended for a deep cut from a broken mirror on my thumb? I can still move my thumb in several different directions. :(

In brief: Clean Wound

Since it is a clean wound you only need Tetanus shot if you have not had one in ten years

In brief: Ten Years

If it has been over ten years since your last tetanus shot then yes, it would be a good idea.

In brief: Yes

It's always good to have your tetanus immunization up to date.
If it's been ten years or longer you should get a booster. Talk to your doctor. Take care!
