Just a side note, in the medical field, we know that usually catastrophes happen when you are not aware, take the example of tetanus a deadly disease yet easy to prevent, because vaccination is done in childhood and repeated every ten years, everyone is protected yet the medical personnel always verifies immunization status for every wound just because the disease is deadly yet easy to prevent, with that we still have cases of tetanus and guess what's the most frequent cause ? it's roses spikes
Why ? people never suspect getting tetanus from a rose spike and don't seek treatment...
You are right, Birghtcolours, it was past my bed time when I wrote :unsure: .
Mistakes like these are easily made, I normally have a habit of reading mine post once over. But sometimes I just forget or just miss my own errors. Hope it has been forgiven :lol: .
Sorry, I meant 'when I wrote it'. I forgot to place 'it'.
That's new for me that rose thorns can cause tetanus.
Here you only advised to get a tetanus shot when you cut yourself, or just in my case 2 months ago, the cat lay on the arm rest of the sofa and I was lieing on the floor. The cat woke up, fell and came down on my face and thereby scratched my neck. A cut of 15 cm was the damage.
So, even indoors is not safe!
Indeed, if you can prevent tetanus, then that's a good thing.
I got the shot because of our cat. 15 years ago I got one, when I cut myself while sawing. 13 years before that I got one because of a moped accident.
Maybe there is a difference in countries, that one is more prone for tetanus occur than another?
