As widely known Italian legislation makes the injection against tetanus compulsory for some units of workers. This isn't often easily organized and accepted. The aim of our work is to bring forward our experience with a group of workers servicing in the airport where tests have been carried out to establish the correct antibody cover through periodic controls. Only 46 workers, out of the 294 tested, have shown immunity deficiency. The vaccination programme has therefore been focused only on this group, realising a considerable organization and economic saving and a better acceptance from the workers side. Programmes have been drawn up for a future vaccinal programme taking into consideration the antibody cover results.
