Tetanus and the Rusty Nail Myth – Bo Kelleher

Tetanus and the Rusty Nail Myth – Bo Kelleher

What I learned was that the average annual incidence of Tetanus between 2001 and 2008 was 0.10 per 1 million population and declining and 15.4% of the 197 deaths (30 people in an 8 year span, at an average overall death rate of 25 a year) were amongst people with diabetes and 15.3% (30 people) were among IV drug users. [1]

That report also showed that Tetanus was most prevalent among Hispanic men aged 35-60 (59.2% were male with a mean age of 49). So unless you’re a middle-aged, hispanic, diabetic sharing a dirty heroine needle with a junky, your risk of death from Tetanus is infinitesimal. And within all those deaths; for the 61 souls who sought medical treatment for an injury susceptible to tetanus, over 96% were not given the proper protocol of wound care by medical staff (Tetanus Immune Globulin prophylaxis) [4]. They died because of medical incompetence or neglect.

In the SAME time period as the CDC Tetanus Surveillance, VAERS (the HHS Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) shows that 54,556 adverse events were reported following a Tetanus related vaccination [2]. It also shows that 795 people DIED in correlation to receiving Tetanus during that same period [3], meaning that you are over 400% more likely to die in association with a tetanus vaccine than you are of tetanus, and if you get tetanus and seek treatment but succumb to the toxoid), there’s a 96% historical probability that the doctors will have failed to treat your wound properly.

You’ll notice that the sources I’ve linked to are from official government data, not from a playboy bunny or some supplement peddling website. Thanks Google for pointing me to these authoritative sources.

  2. About 10-15 years ago, I stepped on a underwater rusty nail. Went about an inch and a half in, filled my boot with blood. Within a couple of days, and unbeknownst to me, I had the beginnings of a blood infection, with faint red lines starting to go up my foot.

    I was fortunate to have good health insurance at this time, and figured I’d go to a doc just to check it. He immediately recognized it and it was early enough that the antibiotics took care of it before any serious effects at all.

    But if this happened to someone without insurance, such as a non union construction worker, I can totally see them toughing it out, because puncture injuries are not that painful really. I almost did the same thing, I just went in to be sure because I had insurance and I had faith in the system at that time.
