In brief: Booster time

What did you cut yourself on? How long ago did you have a tetanus shot.
The chances of getting tetanus are remote, but if it has been longer than ten years since your last tetanus shot, you can still be protected because tetanus is a slow growing organism. Get a booster if needed.
