I have just recieved my first dose of Twinrix. My next appointmnet is 1 month from today then 6 months from now. My question is.... how strict is the schedule? My last dose is 2 weeks AFTER I return home from vacation. Can I get the shot before I leave which is 2 weeks prior? I am not really interested in the accelerated dosage unless it is absolutly nessecary. Thanks

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not worry about a small change in schedule either way.

thank you
