A couple of weeks ago I banged my head pretty good on a nail in an attic. Truss defects, no ridge vents, leak at chimney, other problems noted. After admitting what I had done (seeking some sympathy) the first question was “When was your last tetanus shot?” It was 1995.
Had a routine Dr. appointment today and asked for a Tetanus shot. Come to find out, they don't carry any - business decision - not reimbursed much by insurance companies. He suggested the local Health Dept. They had it - $24 a shot - fill out a short form - no big deal.
Problems from Tetanus are preventable but not curable. If you are not up to date - I suggest checking into a booster shot - cheap problem prevention.
