it's an immunization to keep you from getting tetanus (lock jaw).  it's done every 6 to 10 years depending on what your risk level is.

oh no.  it's not mandatory for anyone except kids need it for school.  it's a good idea especially if you work on a farm or some place where you are apt to get scraped up and dirty.  tetanus lives in soil and can infect you through a cut.  Clostridium tetani spores.

It's just one of a long line of government mandated vaccines that US citizens are required to have injected into their bodies. You can at this time still elect not to have the injections, but then you are denied the ability to participate in many social and government run programs.
