Answer #1

1.

A man presented with ER with a large laceration sustained at a construction site (3 days before).

He is given a TIG injection.

His tetanus vaccination is unknown.

Answer - Then the patient Should also get a tetanus vaccination because he needs protection against tetanus exposure.

Titanus Immunoglobulin will give short term protection from Clostridium tetani but TIG doesn't give long term protection because it has a half of 3 to 4 weeks. The patient should take a tetanus vaccine with TIG for long term protection from future exposure.
