|Missed Hep Shot
Apr 28, 2008
I missised my second dose of HepB vac by three weeks. Do I need to start over? I was supposed to have the shot on 03/28, but did not receive it until 04/17.
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would continue getting your shots and then get a surface antibody test after the series is done to see if you are protected.
