Does anyone know how long a tetanus vaccination lasts for? I had one about 5 years ago but when I cut my leg and have just cut my finger with a really rusty razor!

3a.12 How long does the tetanus vaccine last?

Generally ten years. In the case of a really dirty wound, a booster is
recommended if the person hasn't been vaccinated for tetanus within
the last five years.

You dont need boosters any more, not sure why some of you are getting them. You onlyneed a tetanus jab if you are a child or if you puncture your skin with a dirty (mud etc) or rustyimplement, ie a nail, barbed wire etc.

If you go to see a nurse for anything (mine is asthma) she will check your vaccination record and give you one if you need it. Don't know why but they just love giving jabs, I even got an MRSA jab I'm 25!!

no mrsa jab exists. There cant be an immunisation for it because it is a staphaurreaus which most people need. MRSA is massively widespread and a huge percentage of healthy people carry it. its only when it enters the body through cuts etc that it causes problems. I am affraid you havent heard about it. You most probably have it though.:thumbsup:

The offending razor/scraper.... lol
