BayTet (tetanus immune globulin human solvent/detergent treated 250 units) is an immunization used to prevent tetanus following injury in patients whose immunization is incomplete or uncertain. BayTet is also indicated in the treatment of active cases of tetanus. Common side effects of BayTet include:

  • soreness at the injection site, and
  • fever

The dose of BayTet for adults and children 7 years and older is 250 units given by deep intramuscular injection. At the same time, Tetanus and Diphtheria Toxoids Adsorbed (Td) should be administered. BayTet may interact with "live" viral vaccines such as measles, mumps, polio, and rubella. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use and all vaccines you recently received. It is also unknown if BayTet can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before receiving this vaccine.
