Unnvaxed son disappointed he had no chance for tetanus

my older teen son cut his hand (small) at work today on a food can...he came home and wanted to know the signs of tetanus, which i told him, and also found it it had bled, and then told him blood and oxygen will kill tetanus, and he walked away muttering 'dammit'..

obviously this is a sarcastic post, and my son has been making comments lately about 'catching' this or that disease, which usually turns into a joke about vaccines

LOL!!!!  I find it amusing since I had to get a booster when I injured myself at work at the age of 17.  I didn't know then what I know now.

As a child I never understood that even if you were immunized against it, you still had to get a shot after a "dirty" wound...   I believed if you were "immunized" you couldn't get it, so why the booster?  :)

I wonder how many Drs push this out of ignorance.
