My 4yo DS climbed up a stair in an indoor play place. One of the steps had exposed metal with a little bit of rust. The metal was blunt and rounded on the edge. He banged or scraped his shin against it and now has a cut and a bruise on his shin. Just wondering what the chances are of Tetanis in a shallow wound such as this.
Im a worrier by nature, so my first inclination was to run out and get the tetanis vax. But once I thought about it, I quickly changed my mind. He has had no vaxxes at all. It's extremely difficult to find good advice in the medical community or anywhere for that matter. I sure would appreciate a few opinions.
Just for reference, Im posting the pic below.
