Re: IPV vax question...

It takes several weeks to get immunity from a vaccine, so getting the tetanus shot after stepping on a rusty nail doesn't make sense. If your LO has been in a situation where there is real, serious concern about tetanus, they will give the TIG (tetanus immune globulin). Vaccines are NOT emergency medicine.

I, personally, have never worried about vaxes before going to Mexico.
