Doctor said that a person should inject tetanus injection two in a year for getting free from the disease..Do you inject this vaccination in regular interval..?

I was aware as a kid and i am still aware now that we need to take an anti tetanus injection in every six months. But i havent been taking it for the last 15 years.

I don't think it is important for someone to have the tetanus injection. In fact it is not so easy to catch the tetanus. Even if it is unlucky that you have the tetanus, there is still a solution. If it is not necessary, an injection will somewhat have the bad effects. It is not worth to make such a risk if this injection is not so important. I love China

Nope i don't inject tetanus vaccine in regular interval. I use to inject this vaccine when i get hurt from iron metal and bleeding comes then i go to the pharmacy for injecting the tetanus..

Actually its once a year for Tetanus toxoid and anti-toxin to prevent active infection, the conditions that we give twice within the year is during pregnancy period to prevent neonatal tetanus (Tetanus of the infant)...Tetanus injections may be given post exposure, meaning after a wound is sustained ..
