Answer: The Tetanus vaccine is given to babies as part of a three part series called DTaP. This shot includes the vaccine for diptheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis. After the three part series, the Tdap shot should be given every ten years as a booster. This shot again includes tetanus, diptheria and acellular pertussis, but contains smaller amounts of the last two. If you do not get the ten year boosters you should definitely get a tetanus shot if you have a severe rug burn, are cut by any type of metal (including, but not limited to: staples, nails, gates, etc.) or get soil in a wound.
Answer: It prevents developing things like "lock Jaw" when you are injured by cuts, dog bites and several other injuries that seriously break the skin. They recommend you have a tetanus shot every ten years especially if you are in a trade where minor injuries with metal cuts happen.
Answer: As I understand, there is no last required tetanus shot. The vaccinations for tetanus are administered every ten years after the age of 6 years old. Before the age of six years old, a tetanus and diptheria vaccination is given when one is an infant, I believe.Exception is when one experiences in particular a deep would. If this occurs, a tetanus vaccination is given as what is called post-exposure prophylaxis. What that means is that the vaccination for tetanus is given due to the possibility that, due to the wound, one may have been exposed to the bacteria that causes the disease of tetanus.After the tetanus vaccination is given, it may take up to two weeks for the formulation of antibodies to prevent acquiring the disease of tetanus.
Answer: Adults are usually given vaccines in their upper arm; unless, their arms are too thin. And, babies are given most vaccines in their upper thighs at least, until they are walking. However, as long as the buttock has enough muscle adults should be fine, but you should check with a healthcare provider to be sure! BTW, tetanus shots can cause some discomfort or even be painful at the injection site.
Answer: I was looking to find this out for myself, but cant find anything on it!! I got a shot today, and just took a xanax without thinking about it first. Too late....so we shall see. I did tell the dr. i was taking Xanax before the shot, so i would have thought she would have said something.
Answer: There are three main forces that a bullit does to a body. The first is physical force caused by the mass and inertia of the bullit hitting the flesh and causing physical damage to the tissues; the second is due to the compressive/expansive forces of the bullit (and the gas of the powder charge if at point blank range) as it travels inside the body, and the third is physical burning from the super heated temperature of the lead itself. Bullits also frequently spin out of control inside a body and also fragment causes hot spinning metal to tavel in odd directions. Nasty really.
