Tetanus Toxoid Vaccine
Protect both mother and newborn from deadly infection.
Good news. In the three decades since the introduction of the Tetanus Toxoid (TT) Vaccine, maternal and newborn deaths from tetanus have dropped 92 percent.
Bad news. It is still a major threat to the survival of pregnant women and babies in many parts of the developing world.
Tetanus afflicts mothers and newborns when women give birth in unsanitary conditions. It kills rapidly. Once a newborn contracts the disease, the fatality rate can be as high as 100 percent.
TT Vaccines eliminate this grave threat for five years. This gift provides 400 doses to protect mothers and their babies from tetanus.
