SHOULD WE TAKE A TETNUS INJECTION IF WE GET HURT FROM A SAFETY PIN OR A NEEDLE?

Dear student,                                                                
​Please find below the solution to the asked query  

Yes, we should take tetanus injection if got hurt from a needle or safety pin.The tetanus injection we take contains tetanus antitoxin. This antitoxin neutralises the effect of tetanus toxin in the body.
Tetanus is a disease caused by the infection of bacteria 
Clostridium tetani.  On entering the body, the spores of C. tetani germinate to form the bacteria and spread the poison named tetanospasmin in the body resulting in the blockage of nerve signals from the spinal cord to the muscles thus causing severe muscle spasms and results in lockjaw.

Better to take for  both because both can be rusted so if its hurt by them it is
very dangerous for  our health and we should take this injection within 24 hours
after this incident has taken place.
