If you got a tetanus booster at the beginning of a school year and keep on missing the dates to get the second booster can the vaccine hurt you?

Tetanus boosters are good for 10 years.If you go past the 10 year mark,the other booster wont hurt you when you get it.I got a Tetanus shot in 1994 and that is the first one I ever remember having.I felt fine after having it.

TD stands for tetanus-diphtheria

Yes, with the tetanus vaccine (Td, or TdaP w/ pertussis vaccine as well). Adults should get a booster every 10 years.

Yes there is a vaccine for tetanus. It is given as a preventative to babies in a three part series together with the vaccine for Diptheria and acellular Pertussis. The vaccine is known as DTaP. Every ten years people should get a Tetanus booster shot. The booster, again is not given alone, but rather as part of the Tdap vaccine. The change in name indicates that the same amount of tetanus toxoid is injected, but a smaller portion of diptheria toxoid and acellular pertussis is injected.

Adults need a tetanus vaccine booster every 10 years. You may need a tetanus shot if you've had a "dirty" traumatic injury requiring a visit to your ER or doctor if it has been more than 5 years since your last Tetanus vaccine.

Tetanus vaccine is an inactivated toxin (poison) called a toxoid. It is produced by growing the bacteria in a liquid medium and then purifying and inactivating the toxin. Not being a live vaccine a person's immunity declines with time, which is why booster doses are recommended.

How often a tetanus vaccine should be administered depends on the labeling of the particular vaccine. In the US, tetanus vaccines are labelled for administration once a year. There are situations where a veterinarian may recommend a booster, such as when a horse is injured and it has been more than 6 months since a tetanus vaccine was administered.

You get a tetanus vaccine from the doctor

In my area, tetanus vaccine is given at any time of day.

no.. when you get a vaccine it gives you a little bit of the bacteria from the disease so your body builds an immunity to it. So no, the tetanus vaccine DOES NOT kill tetanus organisms, but deposits tetanus into your body! sounds crazy right?

If you haven't had a tetanus antitoxin booster vaccine in the last five years, the general medical advice is to get another booster. Actually, this is true of any deep penetrating wound - stepping on a rusty nail is simply the classical case of tetanus from the last fifty years or so.

Tetanus is a disease caused by bacteria. Tetanus vaccine is an injection of killed tetenus meant to prevent the disease.

No, and it never was. The tetanus vaccine only contains human immunoglobulin. There is something called tetanus anti-toxin that can be produced in horses or sheep. If you have a puncture wound and have never been immunized or it has been over 10 years since your last booster shot, your doctor may give you a shot of this antitoxin. It's like giving antivenom for a snakebite. This anti-toxin shot is NOT the same as the tetanus vaccine. It doesn't last long in your system, so it does not confer tetanus immunity.

Tetanus Toxoid Tetanus Toxoid

your mom should get tetanus vaccine

Yes and then some. It is a combined vaccine which includes a tetanus vaccine. TDAP = Tetanus toxoid, Diphtheria, acellular Pertussis vaccine. DTP is diphtheria, tetanus toxoid, and pertussis (cellular) which is not used any longer due to problems with the pertussis portion of the vaccine. Is the vaccine Tdap contraindicated in first trimester pregnancy?

Tetanus Toxoids vaccine

Tetanus-Diphtheria Vaccine

tetanus PREVENTS lockjaw if this is what you mean

The TT, or tetanus, vaccine, is usually administered as part of the DPT/DT/TT (Dipetheria, Tetanus & Pertussis, and Tetanus) shot, and is intramuscular.

DTaP vaccine or DT vaccine

They should get the vaccine once a year.On horse isle the answer is yearly ^^this is correct but yearly is the wordingA horse should get a yearly tetanus booster during it's annual vaccinations. It should also get a booster if it has sustained a puncture wound 6 months or longer after the annual booster shot.

By giving vaccination as children adolescents and adults from ages 11-64 receive a booster does of pertussis vaccine at the time they receive their diphtheria and tetanus boosters

One combines the HIB vaccine with meningococcal vaccine, and the other with tetanus vaccine.

Tetanus vaccine saves you from a very deadly disease called as tetanus. Only disadvantage is the vaccine is some what painful like most antibacterial vaccines. With repeated injections, you get rash on your body. This is due to hyperimmunoglobinemia.

According to the CDC's Vaccine Information Statement, it is best to be vaccinated as soon as possible after giving birth if you have never received the vaccine. If there is a need for the tetanus vaccine during pregnancy, it is recommended that the "Td" version (Tetanus - diptheria) be given and not the "Tdap" (tetanus-diptheria-pertussis).
