Today my 7 yr old son was on his friends bike, i guess the handlebar was rusty. He got a cut from the rusty part. looks like the size of maybe a papercut or a smidge bigger. pretty tiny. i washed it right away. he was vaxed as a baby and got either two or three doses of dtap, so that was around 6 yrs ago. Should i be concerned about tetanus? honestly in the last year ive been looking into getting him vaxed for tetanus. with the Td shot, as he had bad reactions to the pertussis component. But, im scared now. should i take him in and ask about the tetanus immune globin?! thanks so much for any feedback.
