    Default tetanus vaccine considered rx drug management?
    Exam Training Packages
    Patient presents with R leg contusion/abrasion. A tetanus shot is given. Would this be considered prescription drug management under the Management Options section of the risk table?

    Default Tetanus vaccine considered rx drug management
    Per question and answer below. I am wondering where to find information that this is considered prescription management. I have been coding Dtap as low risk.

    I am thanking anyone in advance that might have some information.

    Thank you.
