Beaniemaster 2. Tetanus shots are immunizations--like measles or the flu. It keeps you from getting tetanus. You should get a booster tetanus immunization, at least every 10 years. I would suggest trying to get one about every 7 years so you'll have a window of immunity if a disaster hits.

Your doctor can give you one or, probably the health department. Most tetanus shots will be combine with a diptheria and, possibly, pertussis--two contagious diseases which will certainly be more prevalent in prolonged disasters.

Thanks Doc but I don't do immunizations, haven't had one since I was 5 for Polio (had no choice in it), so the one time dose is only a booster and would do no good???

I have a couple of new posts up. One is on how to deal with nuclear power plant meltdown threats. Another is on potassium iodide. I'd love to know your thoughts. www.TheSurvivalDoctorMag.com

Hello Doc Hubbard. Saw you in the clinic. Good to know you're "one of us" I'm an RN and sometimes our fellow medical friends think we're whack-a-doo to prep. Also good to know you're a fellow Southerner. Go Rebels and Roll Tide.
