Tetanus shot

Patient: I stepped on a clean piece of metal this morning. My foot is sore and a little swollen. It’s been awhile since my last tetanus shot, but I don’t have insurance and live a long way (hours) from an ER. How important is it to get a tetnus shot. And how long can I go before I get one? What should I look for as far as infection?
