Tetanus Vaccine Types

Tetanus vaccine types include:

DTaP - for children under 7, protects against Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis.

Td - Tetanus and Diphtheria booster for adults every 10 years.

Tdap - adds protection against Pertussis for adults and adolescents, recommended once in adulthood and during each pregnancy.

How Does the Tetanus Vaccine Work?

The tetanus vaccine, available at tetanus shot clinics, works by stimulating your immune system to produce antibodies against the tetanus toxin. When you receive a tetanus shot, your body learns to recognize and fight off the bacteria that cause tetanus, preventing the disease from developing if you’re exposed to it in the future. It’s a safe and effective way to protect against the serious health complications associated with tetanus. Regular boosters are needed to maintain immunity.
