Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
You need not take another tetanus injection as you are protected by the first injection at least for 6 months.
However in high risk injuries kindly do get the wound evaluated by a doctor in future for further advice.
As of now u neednot take any injection again.
Wishing you good health.
