What is the Td vaccine ?

It is the vaccine that protects against Tetanus and Diphtheria and is meant for adults. It contains different dose for Diphtheria as compared to the DT vaccine. Td is made for people 7 years of age and older. People who have not gotten at least 3 doses of any tetanus and diphtheria vaccine (DTP, DTaP or DT) during their lifetime should do so using Td. After a person gets the third dose, a Td dose is needed every 10 years throughout life.
