Hepatitis vaccine
Feb 10, 2010

I have completed my round of vaccines for hepatitis a and b and my doctor recently did a bllod test to see if it created the antibodies it needed too. He said it didn't and that I would have to have the shots again at a higher dosage. Why didn't it work? Also should I be doing it again? What questions should I ask my doctor?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Not everyone has a satisfactory response to hepatitis B vaccine. A double dose may certainly work.

Is HIV and HCV coinfection finally going to kill me?
