DTP Vaccine Tetanus

Tetanus is a serious bacterial infection that affects the nervous system and causes muscles throughout the body to tighten. Tetanus is also called lockjaw, because the infection often causes muscle contractions in the jaw and neck, but it can eventually spread to other parts of the body.

The vaccine for tetanus was found in 1947. Since then, the number of cases has gone down 95%.
