    Infection occurs with burns and "dirty" wounds or punctures (such as rusty nails, animal bytes garden injuries or accidents).

    Where is it common

    Tetanus is a significant public health problem throughout the world especially in non-industrialized countries.

    Who should get Tetanus vaccine

    Immunization of international travelers is recommended before travel if their last immunization was 7-10 years ago.
