To the Editor.—  Recent recommendations suggest booster doses of toxoid in previously immunized individuals and use of tetanus immune globulin (human) otherwise. This is adequately summarized in the AMA Drug Evaluations 1971. Present day courts might well question any use of tetanus antitoxin with adverse effects, should either of the other two alternatives be available.
