I cut my foot on the top of a nail the other day in our house. I dont think It was rusty. do i get tetanus jab

Anything that punctures the skin should be a concern for tetanus. If you have not had a tetanus shot within the last ten years I would be concern about getting one done. Tetanus can be cause from many things such as glass, metal, wood and such. Make sure that you have cleaned the wound well. Use peroxide as well as iodine and an antibiotic cream to help protect the wound. If you haven't or can't remember the last time you have had a tetanus shot head to the doctor or your local county shot clinic to get one administer.

Only if you haven't had one in the last five years... and you should get it within the first 48 hours.

I would go see your family doctor about it.

If you have not had a recent tetanus shot you should get one. Keep the wound clean and use some antibiotic ointment .

keep the cut clean. wash it out daily with soap and water. you can apply a thin layer of neosporin to it as long as it's not a huge open cut. apply a gauze square to it to keep the neosporin from rubbing off.

a tetanus shot is necessary if you haven't had one in the past ten years. it will protect you from serious infection.

If you like having that toe, get a tetanus shot. They last 10 years now.

Whether it was rusty or not, it is better to get a tetanus injection.

If you haven't had a shot in the past five years, it is recommended you do. Read below:

If you have a dirty cut or wound and have not had a tetanus shot in the last 5 years, have a tetanus shot within 48 hours. Some people may need tetanus immune globulin (TIG) for a wound that is at high risk for developing tetanus. The immune globulin is usually only needed if you have not (or do not know whether you have) completed the tetanus vaccination series.
