I had my booster doses of hep b.after few months,i fell something on my right side of abdomen,same feeling if you have heartburn .is this a side effect of vaccine!i noticed it on and off until my 3rd dose,.all my hep test are negative.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not expect this side effect to be related to HBV vaccine. Most commonly we only see some tenderness at the site. This vaccine is extremely effective and well tolerated.

I would see your physician about your symptoms if they continue, but I don't think they are related to your shot.

Anti - HBs results
still worried for hep c!!!
