Tetanus Toxoid (T. T.) vaccine is given to prevent the risk of tetanus. Tetanus is a life-threatening bacterial disease that is caused by the toxin of a bacterium named Clostridium Tetani. Tetanus bacteria enter human body through an open wound. Though, tetanus infection is more common when there is a deep wound e.g. a bite, cut, burn or an ulcer etc.; it may even be caused by a scratch on the skin in some cases. Tetanus affects nervous system and can be fatal if not treated. It is preventable through immunisation. Adults or grown-up children, who have not received tetanus vaccine or for whom vaccination status is unknown, should receive 1 dose of tetanus booster every 10 years.
