Docs told me I you don't need a booster now until after your 40. So for example if your last tetnus was when you were 25. You don't need a booster for another 15 years.

I think current guidelines in the UK is that you have a maximum of 5 tetanus jabs in a lifetime - not every 10 years as it used to be.

Tetanus jabs are on a special three for one offer, you get diphtheria and polio thrown in!

We didn't need anything extra for Lanzarote earlier this year.

No jabs needed, you should be covered from most things - it is europe. If you havent had a tetanus you should have one every 10 years, not just for holidays.
