I've already received the second shot of my vaccine for hepatitis B. My third vaccination is not due till June 8, 2001. In the meantime, what kind of precaution should I take? Do I still need to practise safe sex with my spouse? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Rodriguez-Torres

Until you are sure that you have hep B surface antibodies, in other words that you have developed immunity to hep.B infection you should practice safe sex.
