Does Railroad Medicare cover tetanus shots?

Yes. Railroad Medicare covers CPT code 90714 for tetanus antitoxin or booster vaccines when the vaccine is directly related to the treatment of an injury or direct exposure to a disease or condition. Medicare does not cover routine tetanus booster shots in the absence of injury or direct exposure.
