Keep up with your family’s IMMUNIZATIONS, including YOURS! Yes, adults need immunizations, too, not just children. If it’s been a while since you got a tetanus booster (usually necessary every 10 years) you might want to get one to prevent lock jaw. Lock jaw can occur when you get a cut or other wound. The bacteria is commonly present in soil, dust, and manure and can even infect someone through a tiny scratch, although it’s more likely through a deep puncture created by nails or knives. Without proper medical attention lock jaw can lead to death. It’s important to consider the possibility that in a catastrophe, medical help may be very limited, if at all. Consider all your medical needs NOW for your whole family while you can still do something about them.
