ADPH encourages emergency workers to get tetanus shot

Posted: Updated:
Montgomery, AL -

In the aftermath of recent tornadoes, the Alabama Department of Public Health advises emergency responders and others involved in cleanup efforts to contact the local county health department or their private medical provider to receive a tetanus booster.

Public Health recommends tetanus vaccination for individuals if it has been more than 10 years since their last booster or if they cannot remember when they received their last booster.

Cleanup workers in affected areas may visit the local county health department to receive tetanus vaccination without making an appointment.
