In this podcast, we’ll discuss tetanus: what it is, how you can get it, and what you can do to prevent it. We’ll also highlight the importance of getting vaccinated against tetanus and providing booster shots when necessary. So please listen for more information on this deadly disease!
Teanus is a deadly disease that you need to be aware of. It is caused by the bacterium Clostridium tetani, which can enter the body through a break in the skin. The toxin released by the bacteria causes muscle spasms and rigidity, leading to respiratory failure and death in up to 50% of cases. While tetanus vaccination rates are high in developed countries, it remains an important public health concern due to its potential for outbreaks in unvaccinated populations. For more information about this disease and how to protect yourself from it, please visit our website or speak with your healthcare provider.
