Doc, may tanong lang po ako. Nalilito kasi ako: Pag na expose ka ba sa tetanu tulad ng nasugatan ka ng may kalawang na may tetano, magpapakita ba agad ang sintomas after mo maexpose o lalabas lang ang sintomas after ng 7-8 days?

Translation: If a person is exposed to tetanus, such as a wound or cut that was exposed to rusted metal, will symptoms show immediately or after 7 to 8 days?
