In brief: I'd repeat every 5y
Effective protection depends on lifestyle.
For the average person the coverage should be effective for 10 years if the primary series was completed earlier. If one walks in muddy streams, camps, hunts, works in the dirt a lot, i'd only count on 5 years before getting another booster.
