After a lifetime of remodeling and construction & probably hundreds of scratches and nails in my arms, feet, etc. with no real problems about a month ago I stepped on a old nail. Not a deep penetration so I thought nothing about it. A good scrub with soap, rubbing alcohol, antibiotic cream & a band aid. No red lines, no obvious infection. 6-7 days later an aching in my shoulders, then like I had a really bad stiff neck. After a few days of this off to the Doc. Too late - Tetanus. No real cure just wks. of pain everywhere & weakness.
Sorry for the long post but just look it up, this is some really bad CHIT. Please get your shot...

Oh man, that sounds terrible!! I've had my share of tetanus shots over the years. Postal service made me get one for a dog bite about 5 years ago......never related those two together. Praying for a speedy recovery for you brother. Take care.
