Why You Should Get the CVC Tetanus Vaccine Shot

Why You Should Get the CVC Tetanus Vaccine Shot

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone who has been previously vaccinated with the tetanus vaccine receive an additional dose of the vaccine called Tdap when they become adults. The best time to get this vaccination is between the ages of 11 and 12 years old, but it can be given as early as age 7 and as late as age 21. If you are over the age of 11 and have never received this vaccination, it’s crucial that you receive it right away to protect yourself from tetanus, a fatal infection caused by bacteria entering the body through cuts or wounds in the skin.

What Is the CVC Vaccine?

The CVC tetanus vaccine is a combination of three different vaccines that protect against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough). The C in CVC stands for combination, meaning that it’s a blend of all three vaccines. One injection protects children from three deadly diseases.

What is the tetanus vaccine?

The tetanus vaccine prevents tetanus, a condition caused by bacteria that can be found in wounds contaminated with soil. It’s not common in adults but is more common in children. In fact, it’s one of those vaccines you should get just before becoming pregnant to protect your newborn baby (called passive immunity). The other reason to get it? The tetanus shot is simple and effective, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

What are the side effects?

Although uncommon, side effects of the CVC tetanus shot are possible. Some potential side effects may include: Swelling and redness at the injection site. Nausea and abdominal pain. Fainting is also a rare side effect of any tetanus shot, so be careful as you sit or stand after receiving a shot, as you could lose your balance and fall if you don't focus on standing up straight.

Where can you get a new booster?

To obtain a booster for TDAP, a Tdap vaccine is required. The CDC recommends that children age 7 and older receive one dose of Tdap to protect against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. The TDAP vaccination is also recommended for adults who have not previously received Tdap. Flu vaccines are available from your pharmacist or local health clinic. A flu shot typically costs $10 to $30 if you do not have insurance coverage.

Can I use insurance to pay for it?

Yes. The CVC vaccine is covered by most health insurance plans and Medicare; however, some plans require you to get pre-approval, which you can do over your phone or online. Before getting vaccinated at a pharmacy, it’s always a good idea to call your health insurance provider first so you don’t have any unpleasant surprises after visiting the doctor.

When should you get your last dose?

Usually, your last dose of TDAP should be administered at age 11 or 12, although most doctors recommend getting one as early as possible if you missed previous opportunities. The CDC recommends that preteens receive their second dose before entering seventh grade. Children between 7 and 10 years old should get one more booster after receiving a single vaccine shot in early childhood.

What Is The CVC Shot Used For?

The CVC vaccine, also known as tetanus-diphtheria (Td) vaccine, protects against two life-threatening bacterial infections—tetanus and diphtheria. The Tdap shot is now recommended for all pregnant women during every pregnancy.

Who Needs The Tdap?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that healthcare professionals administer a single dose of Tdap vaccine to adults who have never received a tetanus vaccine or who have not received one in ten years. Healthcare professionals can administer additional doses of Tdap to pregnant women during every pregnancy, regardless of past tetanus vaccination history. Before receiving the Tdap vaccine, adult patients should discuss any allergies they might have with their healthcare provider and ensure that there are no other reasons why they should not receive it.
