Q4 - Tetanus Shot

Question:  An employee steps on a nail at work. A doctor administers a tetanus shot but does not receive any additional treatment or instructions. Is it recordable?

Answer: NO, administering tetanus immunizations are considered first aid and therefore this would not be recordable. (Other immunizations, such as Hepatitis B vaccine or rabies vaccine, are considered medical treatment.) 1904.7 (b)(5)(ii)
