Unvaccinated Boy Who Spent 57 Days In Hospital Is The First Case Of Tetanus In Decades

On the latest episodes of “please vaccinate your kids, you dumb jerks,” a 6 year old boy is recovering from Tetanus after spending 57 days in the hospital.

Tetanus is caused when bacteria from such things as dirt or rust enters the skin.

Tetanus is called “lockjaw,” because the bacteria causes the muscles to essentially freeze.  A victim suffering from Tetanus could easily die of suffocation.

How did the boy contract Tetanus?

Why, because his parents refused to vaccinate him.  And following their 8 week stay in Intensive Care, they are still refusing to vaccinate him.

I don't remember the last time I had a tetanus shot.  IHS asks every Dr visit.  I decline, not refuse.

I'm a carpenter and I cut my hands everyday nearly.

Don't take the flu shot either that one I really don't believe in it's not effective enough
