Remove tetanus and make the state of VA offer it as a separate shot (instead of part of DTAP)

Remove tetanus from the regulation.  Tetanus is not a communicable disease so what's the public health reason to try to mandate it in school children?  Get the state of VA to procure for medical providers tetanus shots as a singular vaccine (instead of including it with other vaccines for other diseases in one needle).
