Rat snake bit my finger - tetanus shot?

Medium size rat snake bit the end of my middle finger - left two small pin prick size bite marks (maybe three, as he may have hit me with his side teeth) that drew a little bit of blood.

Have not had a tetanus shot in ten years. For the medical people out there, is this a tetanus shot worthy event?

Your wife/girlfriend is going to miss that finger almost as much as you will.

A snake was potentially the cause of coronavirus.

Good luck

If you have strong genetics then you have nothing to worry about.

Otherwise, you should probably find a closet somewhere with enough space for you to lie down and take the long nap.

I wouldn't risk it, seriously. Your fingers are too important to just assume they'll be ah'ight to save a little bit of money.

How silly will you feel, flipping fools off with a gimpy, half-finger? Sound awkward? Then don't allow it to even become possibility; Get that shite checked out.

This snake bite has you a little too worried. I would refrain from having any children if I were you, just in case you're genetically compromised.
