DH was installing hardware cloth and a piece of it punctured his wrist all the way to the bone. This morning it is swollen quite badly. Could it be tetanus?

He hasnt had a shot in at least 10 years.

Ouch! If he had injured himself doing something silly and boyish I would say to scare him with shot-in-the-butt stories...but since thats not the case I will send sympathy instead. If it was rusty I would think he'd need a tetanus shot...

Tetanus infection would not show up that quickly, that is just the body's natural defenses.

If he has not had the shot in at least 10 years he needs another booster.

All I have to say is OUCH!
