Tetanus shot

Post by GroveHillWanderer » Mon Jan 15, 2018 11:54 am

Any recommendations for getting a tetanus booster? I know they'd be available at any of the main hospitals but was looking for something a little quicker/easier but still reputable.

I need an injection every 3 months for something else - hospitals (even Bangkok Hospital) aren't interested. I go to the ENT clinic on Soi 55/1. Tell them you don't need the doc, and you're usually away in 10 minutes.

it is surprising how easy it is to get oral medications and how difficult to get injectables. THe forum always advise visitors to bring ANY meds that they take with them.Some people are worried that the syringes will be seen on X ray and cause problems. All injectables are well labelled. it is important to bring an original prescription with you.
