More Vaccination Information:

Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Td) are one of the most common immunizations adults continue to receive after childhood. Tetanus infections cause painful muscle spasms that can cause "lock jaw" preventing the person from opening their mouth; deaths have occurred in 16 % of those infected. Tetanus shots should only be given to pregnant women in the 3rd trimester or the postpartum period.
