Hello, if she has got all her regular vaccinations till now including DPT vaccines, then there is no need for additional tetanus vaccine.

If tdp/ dpt vaccine is completed, there is not need to give tetanus injection since TDP contains tetanus toxoid vaccine.

Ear piercing stud with a gun is done by a doctor and TT is not needed as the bay is will get DPT and other vaccines by 45 days of age. Better to do after the first DPDT injection.
