"Missing Date Tetanus" What Does This Tag Mean?

1 min. readlast update: 10.17.2023

This tag means that your account is missing one or more doses of the tetanus vaccine.

If you have received the required amount of tetanus vaccinations you will need to upload that proof to your Med+Proctor account, if you have not already done so you will need to get vaccinated for immunization compliance. Sometimes, school and state requirements mandate students to upload 2 doses in addition to the 1 dose of TDAP from within the last 10 years. Please make sure to double check your school's requirements to confirm.

What is the Tetanus Vaccine?

The Td vaccine is used to guard adolescents and adults from tetanus and diphtheria, which are both serious illnesses caused by bacterial infection. It is commonly referred to as the “tetanus shot” since it is administered to individuals who have sustained a contaminated wound or burn that puts them in danger of tetanus contamination.

If your account is lacking one or more doses of the tetanus vaccine, this tag indicates that. To get more information on your tetanus immunization requirements, please contact your university health center or email us.
