If you had the complete tetanus vaccinations and the one you received last year was a booster. You don't need any tetanus injection for five years.

You have to take one dose in first 3 moths and a second dose in 6 months .The WHO also recommends that a third vaccine be given six months after the second dose to provide protection for at least five years.

Respected Sir, My mother is diabetic patient since 2007. Sugar level is kept in check by dietary means and medicines. Very recently (some 25 to 30 days back) a small circular wound was noticed on her foot. She had taken a tetanus toxoid injection for that and within two days the wound was healed. But today again similar wound has appeared on the foot. Taking another tetanus toxoid injection is advisable or any other medication is required?

No worries about you Make your mother a dietary table. Increase the amount of vitamin C in the food. Take care of the feet. Wear soft cloth shoes. Make a habit of stroll after eating food. Pranayama is done in the morning in the morning. Include high fiber in the food. Give breakfast on time. Always take care of the feet carefully. Your mother will be healthy.

Hi! today morning I hav cut myself with a iron rod. It was not rusted & my cut is not too serious enough. Should I go for a tetanus injection?

An anti-tetanus serum is not required in routine injuries. It is only recommended in an intensively crushed and dirty wound, in which case it is given within the first six hours after the injury. A routine tetanus toxoid is also not necessary if one is previously fully immunised. In case one is not, then the toxoid is administered within the first 24 hours after the injury.

Hello, tetanus toxoid is given intramuscularly (im), can be given in the upper arm muscle's muscle's insertion or in the thigh muscles. Better not to take risk and visit a nearby doctor who would hardly charge few bucks from you.

in case of tetanus vaccination one shot of tetanus toxoid is good for 5 years and you need not take any tetanus vaccine again if the wound is minor and not infected however the extra techniques dose will not cause any Harm To You
