My 4 yr old ds has one DT shot about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Yesterday, he stepped on an old screw that was sticking out of a chalkboard I picked up at a yard sale. :(
His current doc doesn't have the DT on hand only Daptacel. I'm okay with even getting a DtaP but only Tripedia which they don't have.
I've given him Ledum and cleaned the wound with Hydrogen Peroxide. I'm just worried because it was a puncture wound and didn't bleed much.
Does anyone know how long and how effective just one shot of DT is at preventing tetanus?
