I have a question about the schedule of Hepatitis A
You already completed the vaccination for hepatitis A and B virus.
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.
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.
The immunologic memory remains for at least 20 years.
Hope I helped you.
