A few years back I got a rusty hook imbedded in my hand and got my tetanus booster. The nurse at the hospital said they are good for 10 years but if you get stuck or cut then you should get a booster if it's been over 5 years. I don't get it. Is it good for 5 years or 10 years?
I was just pondering this question because my 5yo ds was playing with a rusty can, kicking it and stuff, and I kept thinking that if he gets cut he would need that terribly painful tetanus booster.
What are your thoughts? My dad told me about his cousin who got tetanus. It sounded really gross and a very bad way to die.
