Keeping your protection against tetanus is always a good idea. Sometimes going on a holiday reminds us we may not have had our regular immunizations against tetanus. Manitoba Health recommends having a tetanus booster every 10 years from the age of 14 on - that is when you would have had the last booster given to children in school. The government covers the cost of this immunization.
There are a number of immunizations or holiday medications you may want to consider....
Are you planning a holiday?
