missed 3rd hepB
Jan 8, 2006
About ten years ago,I took the first two of (I believe) three HBV vaccination shots,I never got the third at all. Am I protected at all?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Perhaps. A positive HBV surface antibody test now would define immunity. You should speak to your doctor about the need for the possibility of repeating the vaccination series.
