Do I need a tetanus shot now?

Posted , 2 users are following.

24 hours ago I got my toe cut greatly by the sharp edge of an opened can which could be dirty because it was

in the rubbish bin

I am 35 but I may have tetanus shot when I was a child.

I don't want to take a shot because I think it is a rare disease and I want to avoid unnecessary vaccine

because I am worried about possible adverse effect

Is tetanus a rare disease?
