What Is The Tetanus Injection Procedure Before Marriage?
, I catin want to ask about TT injection. Next month I want to get married. I have injected TT1 on the 8th for the condition of marriage equipment. Well, TT2 injection schedule is for the next 8 months, whereas I got married on the 14th, so before marriage I inject TT twice. So how good is it? Do you just follow the schedule or postpone it? Thank you 🙏
Hello Ms. Catin! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
TT vaccine or tetanus toxoid is a vaccine to prevent the occurrence of tetanus in you and your baby who will be born later. All women of reproductive age should receive this vaccine. If not, the woman will be injected with TT vaccine for the first time when she first comes for a pregnancy check-up. If you have already been injected for the first time and will be injected a second time before you are married or before you are pregnant, this is even better. In general, TT vaccine will be given in 5 doses. Follow the doctor's advice regarding the next injection. After the 2 injections you received before marriage, you will receive the third to fifth injections after you get married, both when you are pregnant or not yet pregnant. The third injection is given about 6 months after the second injection. The two injections you have received before marriage will also protect your baby when you get pregnant later. Two TT vaccine injections will provide protection for the next 1-3 years. The third injection will strengthen the protection and extend the protection for more than 5 years. It's best to follow the doctor's advice and get back the TT vaccine on the 8th of next month. Complete your TT vaccine until the fifth dose, so that you and the baby you are about to deliver are protected from dangerous tetanus.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
