About our primary care services
Before booking your appointment please note:
How quickly does tetanus set in?
Tetanus, from exposure to illness, often sets in between 3 to 21 days, depending on the wound.
How common is tetanus?
Tetanus is not that common in the US. Each year, an average of only 30 tetanus cases are reported.
Does all rust have tetanus?
Rust doesn’t have and doesn’t cause tetanus but tetanus-causing bacteria on any surface can if it enters through a wound, burn, or blister.
Can you still get tetanus even if vaccinated?
You can still get tetanus even if vaccinated but the risk is lower. However, the risk of reinfection is high so it’s highly recommended to get a booster shot every ten years.
Who is at risk for tetanus?
Those who are at high risk for tetanus complications are people aged 65 years and older. People with diabetes are also at risk for tetanus.
Does my insurance cover my primary care appointment?
At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.
