3rd jab taken when pregnant
Sep 4, 2003

I had my final 3rd jab against Hep B 2 weeks ago, but unbeknownst to me, I was pregnant but had replied in the negative when asked if I were pregnant. Now I realised that at that point I was 2 weeks into conception?! What do I do now?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

You should speak to your OB however the vaccine is just a protein and unlikely to cause any fetal issues. You can contact the manufacturer as well and see what data is available. Good luck! DTD
