More About
Tetanus

Tetanus is not contagious and cannot be spread from person to person.

Symptoms of tetanus may include muscle spasms, especially in the jaw and neck muscles (leading to lockjaw), difficulty swallowing, stiffness in the muscles of the abdomen and back, and fever. Severe muscle spasms can cause fractures and other injuries.
Tetanus can be prevented through vaccination. The tetanus vaccine is usually given as part of a combination vaccine called DTaP (which also includes vaccines for diphtheria and pertussis) or Td (which also includes a vaccine for diphtheria). Booster shots are recommended every 10 years.
Treatment for tetanus may include medications to control muscle spasms, wound care to remove any infected tissue, and antibiotics to kill the bacteria. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary.
Tetanus can be a serious and potentially life-threatening infection, but it can be prevented through vaccination. If you have not been vaccinated against tetanus, it is important to talk to your healthcare provider about getting vaccinated.
