Press release from the Alabama Department of Public Health
In the aftermath of recent tornadoes, the Alabama Department of Public Health is providing guidance about tetanus vaccination for emergency responders and others involved in cleanup efforts. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), workers should receive a tetanus booster if it has been more than 10 years since their last booster or if they cannot remember when they received their last booster.
Individuals should contact their private medical provider or local county health department for availability of tetanus vaccine and clinic times. In some locations, ADPH staff will be conducting special vaccination efforts in both the local health department and out in the community.
Questions about immunizations can be directed to ADPH at 1-800-469-4599.
