Hi Jia,
First, yes I do remember Linda Thurmond.  I thoroughly enjoyed working with
her and please tell her I said hi.
Second, WOW what a problem!  I did an online search for tetanus toxoid and
I only found it sold by vaccine companies.  No where did I see that I could
buy it as a reagent.  Besides Connaught, where have you looked?  I think
Lederle and one other vaccine company supplied it but as vaccines.
Now that you have nudged me again on this, I will try a few more potential
sourses.  Isn't it odd that Sigma doesn't carry it?  
I will be back in touch!
