Tetanus is a condition that develops when a wound is infected with bacteria. Thanks to immunisation it is rare, but is serious & can be fatal if left untreated.

If you have never been vaccinated against tetanus, it is highly recommended that you have this vaccination, as the risk is high on most continents, including Europe. Tetanus occurs naturally in soil, & in the manure of farm animals, & enters the body through wounds such as cuts, scratches, or animal bites. It is a dangerous infection – as many as 1 in 7 people who contract tetanus in the UK die from it.
