Tetanus - Is your Tetanus immunization up to date? Keeping your immunization up to date is always important but is particularly important for those individuals in communities where flooding clean-up is occurring. Tetanus is a bacteria that can enter the body through breaks in the skin or wounds and can occur following a minor scrape or puncture.

Tetanus immunization is part of the routine schedule for childhood immunizations and is recommended for all ages with booster shots given every 10 years.

If you need a tetanus booster, contact your local Public Health Office:
