Need help asap! Where locally to get a child's dose of the tetanus-only shot?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Our daughter got a deep cut while playing outside today.  She has not ever had a tetanus shot.  Our pediatrician's office only carries DPAT.  We went to a nighttime peds clinic and they only have the dose for ages 7 and up.

 

Does anyone know where we can get a child's dose of the tetanus only shot in this area?  We need to do this by tomorrow afternoon, and if we can't find anything we will do DTAP but we would much prefer to do tetanus only.

 

Thanks for any help!

Oh dear. Did you manage to find one in your area?

Yes, it turns out, the ER actually carries it.  Good to know!
