Not sure if I received second HepA shot.
Oct 23, 2004

My records indicate that I received the first HepA shot in June 2000 but I can't remember if I got the second one 6 months later. I am travelling to Indonesia this March. Should I start the series over again, or is there some way to find out if I am fully protected?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You could get a hepatitis A titre checked to see if you are protected. It is a simple blood test.
