    Tetanus Vaccine FAQs

    Tetanus is a bacterial infection that causes painful muscle contractions in the neck, jaw, and abdomen. It is also called “lockjaw” because it may cause muscles in the neck and jaw to lock up, making it difficult to open the mouth and swallow. Other symptoms may include breathing problems, muscle spasms, and seizures. Once infected, it can take several weeks for symptoms to start appearing, and it can take months to fully recover.

    Typically found in the soil, dust, and manure, tetanus bacteria enter the body through a break in the skin such as a cut or open wound. That’s why it’s important for adults to get a tetanus booster vaccine every 10 years.

    Both children and adults need a tetanus shot. Tetanus vaccine is one of the many routine immunizations infants and toddlers receive in the first months of life. Immunity to tetanus decreases over time, which is why children and adults should get booster vaccines to remain protected. If you have not had a booster shot in 10 years or more, you should receive a tetanus shot.

    The tetanus vaccine is used in some combination with diphtheria (D or d) and pertussis (P or p) vaccines, or diphtheria alone. The upper case letters represent a full dose of the vaccine, while lower case letters represent a lower dose of the vaccine:

    DTaP: Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine. Given to children in 5 doses at 2, 4, and 6 months old, at 15-18 months, and at 4-6 years.

    Tdap: A booster shot of the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine. Adolescents 11-18 years old (preferably at 11-12 years) and adults 19 and older should receive a single dose of Tdap. In addition, expectant mothers should get Tdap during the third trimester of each pregnancy.
    Td: Tetanus and diphtheria vaccine for older children and adults as a booster shot every 10 years

    DT: This version is used as a substitute for DTaP for children who cannot tolerate pertussis vaccine.Adults who have not gotten a Tdap vaccine should get it as soon as possible. You can get Tdap no matter when you last got a Td booster shot.
