puncture wounds

I stepped on a galvanized nail in my landscaping. It penetrated my heel thru my shoe approx 1 inch based on how far the nail was sticking out of the wood. This injury occurred 24 hours ago. I had a Tetanus shot a few years back. Today I had vomiting and diharea. Could there be any connection to my puncture wound?

If the wound site does not seem excessively sore and it is not infected (red, swollen, hot, tender), it is very doubtful that there is any correlation.

I seem to recall that tennis shoes are particularly evil when is comes to puncture wounds. I believe that they harbor some malevolent bacteria. These cause bad infections in the foot, not v&d.

No, Diana. It is not called being smart. It is called being ignorant. For a non-tetanus prone wound, which is what you sustained, you do not need a tetanus shot if you have had one in the last 10 years. No offense intended, Frank, but your advice is not correct.
