The type of tetanus prophylaxis that is required following injury depends on the nature of the lesion and the history of previous immunizations. However, no booster is needed if the last dose of the primary series, or of subsequent booster injections, was given less than 5 years ago for dirty wounds or less than 10 years ago for clean wounds.
