"Pressured to have a Tetanus vaccine"

About: Redcliffe Superclinic

(as the patient),

I suffered a severe and fast sharp knock to my head. It was a sharp metal profusion, which slammed into my head, very quickly....short and sharp. It created, just above my hair-line, a 3cm cut, which bled profusely. I suffered no pain apart from the initial thud, no headache, no lasting pain, It bled for some hours. It was morning and I continued to work. Later that night, I attended a doctor who advised that I needed stitches, along with a tetanus shot. After I declined the tetanus shot, the doctor spent 10 minutes questioning my reasoning, stating that despite he and his family never accepting any 'flu' vaccination, tetanus was something which should not be declined, getting into detail of how death was a very real result, etc. etc. and chances were that I would die without one. (as an aside...he asked me when my last tetanus shot was, I said about 4 years ago. He responded with about being not good enough, when was it, 3 or 5 years ago etc. etc. and so we established that I had lied to him and it was really 35 years ago). He passed me onto a nurse who cleaned the wound, after I felt admonished in front of her for my apparent stupidity in refusing the tetanus vaccine. I felt humiliated.

She cleaned it with hydrogen peroxide, placed Betadine on it and left the wound open.

So that night I purchased hydrogen peroxide and applied it again prior to sleep and again the next morning along with Betadine. The following morning, I attended a homeopathy clinic. The homeopath prescribed a course of Ledum 30c and I continued applying hydrogen peroxide and Betadine. It took two weeks for the wound to heal. It would have been shorter had I not one night awoken after scratching the scar-tissue off. After further investigation, should I have similar need in future, I would not use hydrogen peroxide, but use colloidal silver.
