Tetanus Vaccine

GP Matters - Travel Clinic in Glasgow

Tetanus is a serious but rare condition caused by bacteria getting into a wound.

The number of reported cases in the UK is low because an effective tetanus vaccine is given as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme.

Most people who get tetanus have either not been vaccinated against it or did not complete the entire vaccination schedule.
