|Hepatitis A Ques.Hlp
May 12, 2010
Hi doctor, I am immune from Hep B. I have recently taken the Hep A vaccine. Actually, Just finished the second and (last) dose of the Hep A vaccine around 6 months ago. Do you think i should do a specific blood test to see whether or not my body developed immunity from Hep A ? thanks.
Response from Dr. McGovern
The hepatitis A vaccine is so effective that routine testing of antibody after immunization is not recommended.
