3 year old DD stepped on a piece of metal - tiny like a sewing needle - that was outside following the new siding that was put on our house. The piece of metal was not dirty, but had been outside on top of the grass for less than a week.
The piece was maybe 1/8th of an inch into her skin and went in sideways similar to a sliver. DH said that it was red and bloody, he pulled it out as it went in and then it bled quite a bit, a blob about the size of a bean. It stopped bleeding after about one minute of pressure. I squeezed it and made it bleed. I also squeezed it and poured peroxide into the wound.
DD hasn't been vaccinated for tetanus. I'm not inclined to get her an immunoglobin shot, but I'd hate to have something go wrong. Just getting your opinions as fellow non-vaccinating moms. Should I get her the shot??
