In brief: Shot to prevent teta
Heat-treated tetanus toxin is non-toxic but stimulates immunity to protect against tetanus for at least 10 to 20 years.

In brief: Inactive
All tetanus containing vaccines are inactive, meaning the infectious agent has been altered so that it cannot cause disease, but can stimulate an immune response.
