My dd is almost 6 and has had no vaccinations to date. We are considering tetanus and I called the Dr office to see what would the course would be. They said they don't have T by itself. Wondering if anybody here has gotten just T for their kids?
I have a 6 yr old non vaxxed kiddo too. I'm in the same boat, I want T but found out from her ND that my only choices are DTaP (3 doses before age 7) or TD after age 7.
I'm actually taking her in next week for her first DTaP because I ended up wanting to protect her from pertussis as well (she is asthmatic and colds/coughs are really brutal for her).

I'm pretty sure the closest thing to a tetanus only vax is actually the one with diphtheria toxoid in it, too. But it's pretty much being phased out in favor of the TdaP.
There is a tetanus toxoid vaccine, but it is only approved for children over 7 years of age and adults
