We are trying to get only tetanus vaccine for our son, but we can't get a clear answer on whether you can get *just* tetanus toxoid without diphtheria and pertussis. Our ped told us to order it from a pharmacy, the pharmacy told us to call the manufacturer, the manufacturer says our ped has to order it!<br><br>
We are in California, if that makes any difference as far as availability. And, if it is available, does it contain Thimersol?

<b>TT</b> is indicated for individuals age seven and older. <b>DT</b> is indicated for children up to age seven.<br><br>
For future reference, most doctor's offices and hospitals stock the mutli-dose formulation of TT, which contains 25 micrograms of thimerosal in each dose.

But tetenus has never been a concern for children. Statistically your child has a better chance of being struck by lightning.<br><br>
