Tetanus concern

I was at the farmparks today and piglets began nibbling in my fingers like a bottle. Staff became concerned shortly after about tetanus. I had a small, nearly healed/unopened by appearance hangnail, on one finger. I had my last tetanus booster in 2012. Should I be concerned or go to my doctor?
