Tetanus immunizations are given as part of the Manitoba Health Immunization Program. This means there is no cost to you for this booster.
The regular immunization schedule for preschool and school aged children will offer adequate protection.
The last immunization given to children is around age 14. A booster is required to maintain immunity and offers protection for 10 years.
If you need a tetanus booster allow 2-3 weeks for immunity to build after the immunization.
