Ep. 45 – Tetanus: The Disease and the Vaccine

The Vaccine Conversation with Melissa and Dr. Bob


Today we discuss a disease that many parents are concerned about, despite the fact that it is extremely rare. Could your child catch tetanus from a simple scrape from a dirty, rusty nail? How does tetanus even happen, and how can you prevent it? Should unvaccinated kids get a tetanus shot for any wound, or just severe ones? How can you identify the symptoms so your child can receive prompt treatment. And what about the vaccine? Are the potential side effects worth the disease protection? bit.ly/vaxconv
