Tetanus booster dose should be taken once in 10 years but however taking a tetanus shot within 48 hours of injury is preferable and is of no harm even if you are vaccinated recently. So you can take a shot to be on safer side and for your satisfaction. As per your pic, injury looks minor. So don't worry. Take care
