Can a pin prick cause tetanus? I last took tetanus shot 5 years ago.
And it depends on what kind of tetanus shot you got.
You need to keep an eye out for signs of infection-- AND ask your questions of a medical professional.
I think you only need to have a tetanus injection once every ten years - that's what they (doctors) used to recommend. But now the advise has changed to 5 shots in a lifetime.
Though you should perhaps still check it out yourself.
Tetanus is nromally associated with damage from objects that have been in, or on, the ground. It is unlikely that a pin prick from a pin in your house will carry it.
As a side note of interest - I had tetanus when I was four years old and was one of the first to survive it thanks to new ways of revival after the heart stops. At that time I was headlines famous in my local paper for a week or more.
