I have done the research on the disease, the causes, and the likelihood of contracting it in my day to day life, and combined with that information and the fact that I have a strong negative reaction to the vax, I have made the decision to no longer vaccinate myself against Tetanus. That being said, I would never advise someone to refuse vaccines unless they knew WHY they were refusing.
I know the wound needs to bleed, I just get worried, purposely opening your skin and having a possibility of infection or tetnus.
I am not vaxing at all, not just not for tetnus. I believe we are created in the image of God, so needing foreign substances injected into our bodies, is basically saying God's design isn't good enough,therefore, it's insulting to Him.
Also, The body is the temple of God, so to pollute it, is defiling the temple of God.
I just got my first vax book, I'm slowly but surely getting into it. It covers how to properly care for VPDs.I just thought I'd ask, and get some opinions on tetnus.
