Here are some of the most common questions we hear people ask about it. We hope you find the answers helpful

QuestionSome common questions regarding the Tetanus vaccine

What is Tetanus and how is it transmitted?

An acute bacterial disease caused by the Tetanus toxin. It enters the body through abrasions, and/or cuts and scrapes. Symptoms include a generalized inflexibility and/or spasms of the skeletal muscles.

Where and how common is it?

It is a significant public health problem across the entire world but is most common in non-industrialized countries. Each year there are approximately one million cases of Tetanus reported.

What protection is available?

The TD and Tdap vaccines. The former has been used for many years and offers protection against Tetanus and Diphtheria. The Tdap vaccine has been used since 2005 and is the first and foremost vaccine for adolescents and adults for Tetanus, Pertussis, and Diphtheria.

Have I received it before?

Yes. It is a routine vaccine every ten years. You received it if you have recently undergone any surgery or during a routine physical exam.

Is it covered by insurance?

Most commonly, although Travel Clinic NYC do not accept it.

Is it a required vaccine and who should get it?
