Just a quick one. Does anyone know if there is a tetanus element in scheduled immunisations?
I ask because I'm filling out forms for my Ds to attend an annual camp next year and thousands of kids from everywhere attend (scouts).
The form asks if my child has been immunised against tetanus. And I don't know! I've looked in my maroon Personal Health Record book and cannot find anywhere if tetanus is included in any of the vaccs. We are in Qld if that matters
