Course: if you have had the vaccine before, you will need one dose as a booster. If it’s your first jab, you may need several doses
Boosters: 'How long does the Polio, Tetanus, and Diphtheria vaccine last?' - the vaccine protects you for 10 years. You will need a booster to remain protected after 10 years.
