Is a twinrix booster needed if I have adequate antibodies?
May 6, 2012

My school is asking me to have a Twinrix booster injection, however my Hep antibodies (as measured in Feb 2012) were 112mlU/mL and the accepted level is only 10mlU/mL. Is it necessary to have the booster or will it do nothing as I am already immune? Thanks!

Response from Dr. McGovern

Twinrix protects against Hepatitis A and B...You should be certain that your antibodies are sufficient for both infections.
