Tetanus is a serious infectious disease caused by bacteria usually found in the soil.Tetanus bacteria enter the body through wounds such as cuts, grazes and puncture wounds. This could happen, for example, from a scratch or cutting yourself when gardening.

Bacteria in the wound produce a toxin. This toxin causes:

  • The muscles to stiffen around the jaw, neck, back, chest, abdomen and limbs.
  • Sometimes, a high temperature and sweating.
  • Nerve irritation, which leads to severe muscle spasms and difficulty in breathing.

Someone with tetanus will be very sick and need to go to hospital. Children and old people are especially at risk.
