Chance of infection?

Hi Doctor, thank you for your support. Yesterday, as I was entering my friend's house, I saw a stray dog standing there. He moved away and I opened his heavily rusted iron gate and it pierced into my finger. Can this transmit any infection? My tetanus vaccine is recent.

If you have received tetanus vaccine in the last 1 year, you are fine.

Else have the wound looked at by a doctor
