Me too on taking the chances. Considering that there are less than 40 cases of tetanus a year, and my kids aren't running around barnyards or likely to be in war zones, I'm really feeling okay with them not having any sort of dtp.
On top of that, the tig itself is given automatically in emergency situations if the personnel have cause to suspect that immunizations are incomplete or if older people have lost immunity. There is no greater danger of reaction, the difference is that tig is mostly plasma and more likely to transmit virus. That's my understanding anyway.
