Brief Answer:
You already completed the vaccination for hepatitis A and B virus.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The hepatitis A vaccine is given as 2 shots, 6 months apart.

Both shots are needed for long-term protection.

I see through your query that you have already completed the hepatitis A vaccination.

Hepatitis B vaccine is usually given as 2, 3, or 4 shots over 1 to 6 months.

The vaccine confers long-term protection against hepatitis B virus infection.

You have already done 4 shots of hepatitis B vaccination.

So, you have completed the vaccination for both viruses.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you. So even though I had large gaps between the doses, I am finished with them?

Brief Answer:
These amount of large gaps between the dose does not influence the immunization

Hi again dear,

Yes, this amount of gaps between the dose does not influence the immunization.

Hope I helped you.
