Everyone knows you are supposed to flush out and clean wounds thoroughly -- especially when you live on a farm. Everyone, that is, except young boys. Join the Walker family as they, and their small-town ER doctor, learn more than they ever wanted to know about tetanus: how exceedlingly rare it is, how to identify the symptoms, how to prevent tetanus if you aren't vaccinated, how to treat it when it does happen, and how the risk of the vaccine compares to the risk of the disease.
