South Bay Urgent Care - 1628 Palm Ave, San Diego
I have had many accidents in my life. Been to the ER more than a dozen times for a variety of mishaps, mistakes, and missteps that required medical care and stitches. Never have I experienced the care and kindness I have ever received from any medical care facility as I did by going to South Bay Urgent Care. I hate going to hospitals and try to avoid going at all cost. Unfortunately I sliced one of my fingers half way through and needed stitches. I feel fortunate and lucky enough to have had Isaac Ortega-Endahl, PA-C sew my finger back together. The man has amazing skill sets and should be a surgeon. Thank you Dr. Issac. I truly appreciate your kindness. I didn't realize that I got there close to their closing time and feel grateful to your entire staff that took care of me that night. Kindness is a rare thing in the world today. I'm so thankful that it exists in your staff at South Bay Urgent Care. Truly amazing people.

About Tetanus Shots

A tetanus shot is used to prevent tetanus, also known as lockjaw. Tetanus is a bacterial infection that can lead to painful muscle spasms, and oftentimes, death. Adults in the US have to be vaccinated against tetanus because there's currently no cure for it and roughly 10 to 20 percent of victims die from tetanus. Symptoms of tetanus come from a toxin produced by tetanus bacteria and usually begin appearing about a week after the infection occurs. The most common symptom is muscle stiffness that begins in the jaw and spreads to the neck, arms, legs, or abdomen, but other symptoms include trouble swallowing, headache, fever and sweating, irritability and restlessness, high blood pressure, palpitations, and muscle spasms in the face.

It's important to get treated for tetanus as soon as you know you're infected because if it's not treated quickly enough, you can die from suffocation. Tetanus shots are given in the shoulder muscle. If you've never had a tetanus shot before, you might be given a three-dose primary series. You'll get the first dose as a three-in-one combination called Tdap that prevents tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), and diphtheria (Td). The other two doses will usually be a dual vaccine and you'll receive them over a 7 to 12 month period. You should receive a tetanus vaccine between 2 months and 6 years old, as well as a teenager and an adult. Pregnant women might need a tetanus shot during the third trimester of pregnancy.

Tetanus Shot FAQs

  • How much does a tetanus shot cost?

    Without insurance, the tetanus shot will typically range from $25 to $60. Costs will vary by urgent care clinic. Make an appointment with Solv today to find how much a tetanus shot costs in the San Diego area.

  • Is a tetanus shot covered by my insurance?

    Health insurance plans that include preventative benefits usually cover the tetanus shot. If it is covered, you will typically only need to cover the copay, which can range from $10 to $40.

  • Where can I get a tetanus shot in San Diego?

    In general, tetanus shots will be available at San Diego-area urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care doctor offices, local pharmacies and travel vaccination centers. While walk-in appointments are typically available, booking a visit online will reduce your wait time and ensure you protect yourself from tetanus faster. It’s vital that you seek treatment for tetanus immediately, so make sure you make an appointment for a tetanus shot ASAP.

  • How can I book a tetanus shot in San Diego?

    Regardless of the kind of vaccine you are seeking, Solv can help you book an appointment. Simply search for San Diego-area doctors, find a provider, and book the most convenient time for you. Make sure to include “tetanus shot” as your reason for visit.

  • Can I make a same-day appointment for a tetanus shot in San Diego?

    Same-day and next-day appointments for tetanus shots can easily be booked directly through Solv. Simply search for San Diego-area doctors, find a provider, and book an appointment as soon as today. It is vital to be treated for tetanus as soon as you suspect you have contracted it.

  • How do I find the top-rated travel vaccination specialists in San Diego?

    Solv gathers reviews, ratings, and other data on San Diego-area travel vaccination specialists to ensure the clinics provided meet our standards. Search for a provider, see what previous patients think, and book an appointment with a top-rated doctor today!

  • Who should get a tetanus shot?

    You should receive a tetanus vaccine between two months and six years old, and again as a teenager and adult. If you suspect you have come into contact with tetanus (such as via sharp rusty metal) and have not been vaccinated, seek vaccination right away as the progressions of symptoms is swift and can be life-threatening.
