Bad cut? You may need a tetanus shotBy Mayo Clinic Staff
Minor cuts and scrapes usually don't require medical attention. But if your wound is deep or dirty and your last tetanus shot was more than five years ago, ask your doctor about getting a tetanus booster. Get the booster as soon as possible after the injury.
