Chances Of Getting Tetanus After The Tetanus Vaccine?

If I have had a tetanus shot, can I get tetanus again

1 Answer:

Hello Fifi,

According to data, the tetanus vaccine can protect 93% of the incidence of tetanus and 99% of the fatal complications caused by tetanus disease. So, the answer is possible, but very unlikely compared to not being vaccinated. Vaccines can also prevent the severity of tetanus disease.

The way vaccines work is to insert weakened or killed germs in the body, so that our bodies form specific antibodies against these germs without making our bodies sick. So, when the real germs enter, our body already has protection against these germs so the possibility of getting sick is low.
