Re: tetnus vaccine

Tetanus vaccine is readily available in Illinois, as far as I know, and the window remains 10 years. Never had to worry about keeping immunizations up to date when I was in the Army - now I'll have to start keeping track again!

However the question of interest is, in your state can you find a doctor with
the vaccine? In NYS there is no tetnus vaccine available from a private
doctor, you need to go to a hospital where it is kept in supply by the ER.
This has been so for around two years or more.

My visiting nephew from Florida stepped on a nail and it went through the
tissue between his toes. The ER in a NY hospital charged him 400.00 for the
service as he was not insured in NY. Ask what your state health dept. is
doing for public health services such as supplying tetnus vaccine.

The ten year window on revaccination is thought to be five by some
authorities though it is seldom done unless an event takes place. Strange
situation. Tetnus vaccine had been available freely for years.
