Is a TT injection required for a minor scratch from a iron piece?
NO HARM IN RECEIVING BOOSTER DOSES
welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
After the initial tetanus series, booster shots are recommended every 10 years.
Tetanus is a quite distressing and possibly fatal disease, which is difficult to treat but easy to prevent. That is why, doctors usually do not wish to take risks and give a TT injection almost every time they encounter a patient at risk of developing tetanus.
There is no literature in medicine to indicate that frequent shots of TT are harmfull. You need to understand that TT injections are nothing but antibodies against tetanus toxin, TT if present in blood circulation in excess of what is recommended is still safer. So there is no need to fret over it, relax and stay calm as you are guaranteed of not getting tetanus.
I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
