Visit A Walk-In Clinic To Protect Yourself Against Tetanus After Stepping On A Rusy Nail
If you were working around your yard and stepped on an old, rusty nail, you may want to go to a walk-in clinic to get the wound checked out. At this time, you may also want to get a tetanus shot if you have not had one recently. Rusty nails are often full of bacteria known as Clostridium tetani, or tetanus. If the nail you stepped on has this bacteria, and if you have not been vaccinated against tetanus, you could end up with a dangerous health condition.
