Angry LATEST TETANUS prophylaxis...

What is the criteria for Immunization Prophylaxis guys??

I came across two versions...

one included a criteria with 3 or more doses and less than 3 doses...

the other purely based on no of years passed after latest TT dose ?

what is correct?

the first criteria is for the person with no previous history of tetanus vaccination n
the other applies for those who completed their 3 dose primary vaccination.
