Missed the 3rd Twinrix dose.
Aug 23, 2009

My Twinrix schedule was interupted and the 3rd dose was late. The schedule was 0-1-14 instead of 0-1-6. Will I have adequate protection? Will I need a booster and if so when should it be administered?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I suspect you will be fine. You can check for antibodies in your blood about a month after your last dose to see if you achieve protection.
