Hi there. The vaccine that they refused to you is tetanus immunoglobulin or TETGLOB o or anti tetanospasmin immunoglobin  because it is indicated in the acute management of the injury. What you received is a tetanus toxoid or combination of tetanus and diphtheria toxoid to provide immunity for the next 5 years.  You should not get infected now that its already 4 months past the incident. Take care.
