A Quick Look at Tetanus Shots

When was the last time you had a tetanus shot? If you can’t remember, or if you know it’s been some years, you won’t want to put off getting a tetanus booster. 

This video will show you the reasons why tetanus shots are important and why you need ongoing protection from tetanus. You may be exposed to tetanus through a variety of common sources, such as rusted metal, soil, or dust. If you have an open cut on your skin, tetanus spores can infiltrate and cause severe symptoms, including lockjaw.  

If you’re due for a tetanus shot or you’ve just been injured and are worried about your tetanus risk, visit Paramount Urgent Care. You don’t need an appointment at our Orlando-area clinics, and you can find care for the whole family.
