I have a 2 and 4 year old who are unvaxed at this point. The only vaccine that has always made me uneasy that they don't have is the tetanus. But ds1 had sensory issues at 3 weeks old and ds2 has mild seizures. So .. I delayed them. Ds1 just recently turned 4 which was what I was waiting for.
The dilemma is this, we recently got a puppy and although we are training her and they are never left unsupervised with the puppy , she jumped up and scratched ds2's face with her claw (not to be mean ds2 was holding food) of course this is not acceptable but in the meantime until she is trained it freaked me out that he would get tetanus from this minor scratch/scrape. How concerned would you all be? It bleed a tiny bit I cleaned it and put ointment on it. This happened on Thursday .
And now the even harder dilemma. Ds1 has his 4 year old well check Wednesday and I want to get his tetanus /dtap. Well Apparently our drs office can't even get daptacel right now bc of a shortage!! She said they haven't been able to get it since last sept!! And I was going to do both kids since the dog + dog feces and kids freaks me out. All they have is infanrix which I don't want. I am in NC.. Does anyone have any advice on how I can get it?
