tetanus jab

yesterday i stepped on a thumbtack at the kindergarten. thank goodness it was me and not one of the kids who stepped on it. haha! although realising the thumbtack on the floor instead of stepping on it would’ve been preferrable. looked at it-not a rusty one. anyway it got me wondering bout how long the jab we got in form 3 would last. searched it up on netdoctor.

Question
How often should you have a tetanus jab and is there a limit to how many you can have?

Answer
As a general rule you should have a tetanus booster every 10 years because immunity is provided for this length of time from each immunisation.
