Tetnus Shot

Dr Shawn,

Seeing as your a Doc. before you got GBS did you know that your
not give Tetanus shot to someone who had GBS?
The reason I ask is I had GBS 9 years ago. I knew about the Flu shot,
however I just found out we are not to have Tetanus shots either. My GP gave me a Tetanus shot about 3 months ago. In my new patient exam I told him about my GBS history. He said well no Flu shot for you, but you will need a tetanus shot.
Just wondering your thoughts on this.

Thank you,
