Hepatitis B Vaccination Shot Series Interuption
Dec 3, 2001
If a person has had one or two shots in the three shot series, discontinued for some reason for quite some time and then want's to complete the series, can the series be resumed where it left off, or is there a time frame as to how long before you can't resume. I've read where there is no time frame. Also is it safe to start the series over.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
It is probably safer to start the series over, but you can always check the antibody level and just get the booster. Either way there is no danger. Almost everyone one (95%) will develop antibodies with a series of three. DTD
