I could go into further detail but won't bc I'll start crying. Anyway, the dr's were great at the hospital. They were totally supportive of our non vax stance but did strongly recommend the tetanus shot. Here are my questions:
1. what are her chances of getting tetanus-I think they are minimal. My husband does not. her wound was an open one that gushed a lot of blood. It was properly cleaned and had a lot of "air time" open.
2. We live in Vermont. Isn't tetanus found primarily in warmer states?
|3. She hit a rock, in running water.
4. Is there a way to just get the T and not dpt? I do not want her getting the other two. She does not need them.
