Description

Tetanus is a bacterial infection that affects the nervous system, however, it can ultimately advance to other parts of the body.    Because of the vaccine, tetanus is avoidable.  A booster will be needed every 10 years to make sure that immunity is still present. 

An infection has been associated with:

  • burns
  • animal bites
  • piercings, tattoos, drug use, or injury (ie stepping on a nail)
  • crush injuries

Symptoms associated with tetanus:

  • difficulty swallowing
  • spasms or stiffness in muscles such as jaw, abdomen, chest, back or neck
  • fast heart rate
  • fever
  • sweating
  • high blood pressure

This test will help to determine if an individual has immunity to tetanus.
