I need a Tetanus booster for immigration purposes. I have no record of my last one and I considered getting a titer test done, but don't know the likelihood of it being high enough anyway, because it has been about ten years since my last vax. So, I need recommendations for a Tetanus vaccine that is preferably thimerasol and aluminum free. Or one that has as little as possible of it. The civil surgeon's office that I spoke to said "tetanus vaccine", but according to the CDC requirements for me it would be the Td. I assume that is what they meant.

Please give your recommendations
