In March 2017 I got something stuck in my leg (just above my ankle) I tried to get it out but couldn't. I used a house hold nail cutter (it was clean, not rusty), I got poked in my skin deeper than what I intended (only a few layers of skin, it was not that deep). Do you think that I'll get tetanus as my last shot was over ten years ago. Is it possible that I get tetanus after 7 months of the injury?

Immediately go to any surgeon and show your wound and tell your history to the surgeon. Without seeing I can't say anything.
