Hello!
The best way of preventing tetanus amongst any population is regular immunization with tetanus vaccine. If a person is not sure whether he has been immunized for tetanus in childhood then he should take 3 tetanus shots in about a 1 year time. After these doses 1 booster shot every 10 years may be taken. Farmers are more prone for injuries as Clostridium tetanus are often found in farms where there is animal waste, dirt and soil. Any wound, cut can cause the entry of clostridium tetanus bacteria in the body and lead to tetanus. Tetanus can also occur from puncture wounds from a dirty nail. If a person gets a wound it should be cleaned immediately especially if it is contaminated with dirt, to reduce the risk of infection with the Clostridium tetanus that causes tetanus. One should take a tetanus shot in case of a dirty cut or wound and 5 or more years have passed since last tetanus shot. In few cases tetanus immunoglobulin may be needed if there is a high risk for tetanus and in those who have not completed their vaccination schedule. All farmers should be careful while handling soil and animal waste and should keep their immunization status uptodate.I sincerely hope it helps.
Good luck!
