It happened few hours ago. The nail was small, but rusty and very sharp. It inflicted only a tiny puncture which is barely noticeable now. What concerns me is the fact that there were few drops of blood coming out of it. I can still feel the pain, but it's very mild now. I'm 28 now and I received the last tetanus vaccine almost exactly 10 years ago (December 2008). I've already seen a doctor and he told me that he didn't think I needed a boost since the wound was very small. He says that he doesn't think I should be concerned over it, but that he would give me vaccine not because of this incident, but rather as part of a routine since I haven't had it in 10 years if I wanted to. Can you give me some advise? Does the size of the puncture really means that you are safe from infection?
Thank you guys
