Hello dear, in general tetanus may develop from 7 days to several months after the injury. So if the spasms are increasing, it is advisable to consult to a physician. If you have taken tetanus vaccine within last five years then there is no need of further vaccination and the risk is minimal, however, if not then single dose of tetanus vaccine is still advisable.
