What is a Tetanus Screen Blood Test?

As there is an effective vaccine to protect against tetanus, you can take our Tetanus Screen Blood Test to confirm successful vaccination and immunity to tetanus. Our test investigates this by checking for IgG-antibodies in your blood.

What is tetanus?

Tetanus is a bacterial infection that affects the nervous system and causes muscles throughout the body to tighten. It’s also called lockjaw because it often causes muscle contractions in the jaw and neck.
