|Hepatitus B vaccination
Oct 9, 2006
I'm positive with hepatitus B. My baby was given hepatitus B immunization. How effective is it? Will she be ill?
| Response from Dr. McGovern
Hepatitis B immunoglobulin and Hepatitis B vaccine were given to your baby and they are very effective in preventing transmission. Your baby will need follow-up immunizations as well. Speak with your doctor to be certain you understand the schedule. The vaccine is effective when given according to schedule.
Best of luck to you and your baby.
