Immunisations Abroad (Part 2)
Welcome once again readers to the Part 2 of the previous post regarding travel immunisations! Let's jump straight in and kick off with some more useful advice (shortest introduction in the blog's history).
Commonly known as 'Lockjaw', Tetanus is a bacteria that lasts a long time outside the human body, if you have an open wound or if there is any possible way the bacterium can enter your body, then you should seek medical advice immediately. Tetanus should have been given to you in your younger years (well, that's what the NHS in the UK recommend) but it is not compulsory. The Tetanus vaccine is cheap, safe and affordable but since Tetanus is also found globally, it is encouraged you're immune.
