Ouchies
I am told that if you had all your tetanus boosters on schedule (ie every ten years into early adulthood or something like that)
You no longer need them past a certain maturity
But you are young, you might not be fully primed yet wink
Do you often put horseshit on your carpet btw missus

I pinched my finger in the clothes prop and it was rather rusty. Was told that as I had all my jabs and boosters as a child that I didn't need anymore.

Is it possible you had your boosters at school and the message didn't get to the GP? Year 9 is the last one you have.

DTP at 14, Diptheria, Tetanus and Polio. It's the sugar cube one [bleugh]. If you had all the previous ones, that's the last Tetanus you should need.
