Preventing tetanus in adults in general practice


Tetanus statistics in England and Wales are quoted to show the desirability of widening the population to whom tetanus immunisation is offered.

Methods of obtaining an increased acceptance of immunisation by waiting-room education alone, by waiting-room education with general-practitioner involvement, and by general-practitioner involvement alone were explored and are discussed.
