  1. Tetanus immunity in older adults.

    Article - En anglais

    The frequency of tetanus has declined little in the past decade.

    The majority of cases occur in persons over 50 years of age.

    A sample of 225 blood donors, between the ages of 50 and 68, from a mixed rural-suburban county, were tested for tetanus antitoxin levels.

    Only 14% had protective levels.

    This low rate indicates the need for increased attention to tetanus immunizations in older adults.
