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.)
