Accelerated Vaccine
Aug 28, 2011

I work in a lab and did not know I was put on the accelerated Twinrix vaccination schedule. After the third shot I thought I was done. The 4th booster shot was administered at 27 months instead of the recommended 12. Is that too late for the booster? Do you recommend I be tested for antibodies, or start the entire schedule over again. Thanks.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would just check the antibodies after the last dose to make sure it worked. I would not start over again.
