Hello good evening Ms. Rizqi Bella. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The tetanus vaccine is a government program that is carried out on children and adults, especially women who are about to get married. This is to prevent the occurrence of tetanus in the form of infection of the central nervous system which causes the body to stiffen, respiratory failure, until death. The risk of these injuries is dirty and deep that can be obtained from injuries due to blunt trauma, falls, accidents, and injuries during labor. So that this becomes important to prevent the occurrence of tetanus infection in the future, especially in pregnant women, the protection is for the mother and the child conceived because the fetus will have immunity to prevent tetanus in newborns (tetanus neonatorum). Administration of the TT vaccine is usually done
Dosage I = when getting married
Dose II = 4 weeks after dose I
Dose III = 6 months after dose II
Dose IV = 1 year after dose III
Dose V = 1 year after dose IV
Based on research there is no definite interaction between the use of TT vaccine with vitamin C. In several studies mention that vitamin C has a good effect to reduce mortality in people infected with tetanus. However, further research is needed because the relationship is still statistically low
That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
