Tetanus Immunization

The Part B program covers vaccines that are necessary to treat an injury or illness. This includes a tetanus vaccination. For indications, limitations, and coding guidelines associated with tetanus immunizations, please reference our Tetanus Immunization Policy ArticleExternal Website.

NOTE: When a patient simply needs a booster shot of his or her tetanus vaccine unrelated to injury or illness, it may be covered under his/her Part D plan. Check with the Part D plan for coverage information on the vaccine and its administration.
