Td (Tetanus, Diphtheria)
Similar to the DTaP vaccine, the Td vaccine protects against bacterial illnesses. The Td vaccine assists in fighting against tetanus and diphtheria. Children who have not completed the DTaP primary series are encouraged to get the Td vaccine if they are between the ages of 7 and 10. All adults should get a booster dose of the Td vaccine every 10 years.
Diphtheria is an extremely rare infection of the nose and throat that creates a thick, gray matter to build up on the back of the throat, causing difficulties with breathing. Those with diphtheria will experience a sore throat, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and weakness.
Tetanus is another rare, but potentially fatal bacterial infection. This one affects nerves and causes painful muscle spasms, particularly in the neck and jaw.
