Pretty much every day, for much of the year, I am scratched, jabbed, spiked, cut or impaled by something in the garden; I can't seem to put the compost out with being attacked by a chair, a rose or a random piece of wire hanging from an archway. I have had some very nasty, rusty gashes over the years but never thought to have a tetanus jab, I guess partly because garden cuts are such a daily occurance.
Tetanus bacteria is most commonly found in soil. The condition is rare but serious. The vaccine needs to be administered every ten years (possibly less these days), but GPs etc never seem to mention it...
Is this a grand oversight?
