How long does immunity last after receiving Tetanus Toxoid injection?
Here is what CVS's Tdap paperwork says was administered: "Date: 12/23/2016, DAW: 0, ADACEL TDAP VIAL, SANOFI-PASTEUR, NDC:49281-0400-10, Days Supply: 1, Refills: 0, Qty:0.5 ml"
Not sure, but think I had a tetanus booster "2006ish" and have been doing a lot of construction all this year with multiple cuts and scrapes, splinters (that I simply removed and let bleed as much as possible), etc. Covered with masking or painter's tape (i.e., works MUCH better that band aids! Lol) if wound hurt or interfered with continued construction progress. None became inflamed and all healed quickly. Last splinter was last week.
You don't need additional tetanus toxoid now!
After 5 tetanus vaccines, you are protected for life. Your history sounds like you have been receiving multiple doses with a last one about 10 years ago. From this information, there is no reason to get worried about a possible tetanus infection as you are well covered.
Keep me posted and I wish you a happy holiday season and quick recovery.
