Worth a read at this time of year.
Minimising Garden Health Risks:
Ensure tetanus jabs are up to date. Otherwise, see your local GP for a tetanus vaccination if you have cut yourself on a plant or got soil or manure in an open wound.
If working with or being around anywhere where there is anything rusty is especially prone to tetanus, and its simple to check booster vaccinations for both the UK and abroad, beaches, boats, farmland, visitor attractions, water both open and leaky pipes etc etc
just check kk.
