    Hi! I had GBS in 2017 and only deal with residuals. I cut myself about 2 weeks ago with a dirty piece of metal and my finger got infected. I went to urgent care where they cleaned up the wound and gave me a tetanus shot, with antibiotics.

    My finger is almost healed but I can’t help but be so nervous about the shot triggering GBS or worsening of the symptoms. Has anyone else had this particular shot after GBS?

    Thanks!
