Do i need tetanus shots?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am 20 years old from Serbia. I stepped on a dirty and rusty nail, the wound is not deep that much. I went to the doctors 30 mins after the incident because i dont remember if i was vaccinated ( Vaccination is i think mandatory in Serbia). Doctor said i am vaccinated unitl 2022 and just cleaned the wound. Should i be worried or not about tetanus? Thank you
