Immunity period after second dose..
Jul 1, 2012

Elo Dr. I would like to ask if I am still proctected after 9 yrs since I have a hepa vaccine booster?? Usually how long does it protects us?? God bless.

Response from Dr. McGovern

The hepatitis B vaccine lasts a long time, but in some people the vaccine loses protection faster. If you are at risk, you can get a surface antibody blood test to figure out if you need a booster.

Please I need your advice
