Re: [nafex] Fruitgrowing and tetanus

I'd think a healthy kid might get scratched by a dirty nail and not
mention it to her parents.  Kids get cuts a lot more often than adults,
and are a lot less reliable about washing them.  Call the doctor and
explain about the manure and the farm.  There are lots of urban and
suburban kids (not to mention adults) at lower risk than your daughter. 
I'd guess the national supply can accommodate her.
