Double-Check Which Tetanus Vaccine You're Dispensing

You'll see more of a shift toward giving adults and older children Tdap vaccine (Adacel, Boostrix) instead of Td (Tenivac, etc).

For years, CDC recommended to give Td (tetanus and diphtheria) vaccine for tetanus boosters every 10 years...and to replace one booster with Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis).

Now updated CDC guidelines say it's okay to give either Tdap or Td for boosters, care after a wound, or catch-up immunization in patients over 7.
