Tetanus Vaccines in New Mexico | Tetanus Shots| American Family Care

American Family Care locations in New Mexico provide on-site tetanus shots that protect against Clostridium tetani, the bacterial cause of tetanus, also called lockjaw. When a patient becomes infected, they experience very painful muscle contractions or spasms. The neck and jaw muscles tense up so much that it makes it difficult to open the mouth and causes potential difficulty with breathing.

Tetanus has no cure, so it's imperative to have an up-to-date tetanus shot. Find your location now or walk right in!

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • What vaccinations do you offer in your clinics?

    We offer a wide range of common vaccinations for people of every age. For children six months and up, we can provide regular vaccines against diseases like hepatitis B, and PCV. For adults, we offer flu shots, and tetanus shots, shingles vaccines, and many more. Contact us and let us know which vaccine you need.

  • How do I know if I need a vaccine?

    To discover which vaccinations you've received, look up your vaccination history. Your vaccination record is a comprehensive document that details the history of all of your vaccines as a youngster and as an adult. To access your vaccination record you can ask your family or doctor if they have your up to date report.

  • Is it safe to get my vaccinations from AFC instead of my regular doctor?

    Yes, AFC offers several services that otherwise are made available only through an appointment at your doctor's office. Whether you need a regular checkup, vaccinations, or lab work, we're able to provide healthcare alongside your general practitioner, so you never need to go without the services you need.
