Dear Sarah,thanks for choosing health care magic.You had been vaccinated with hepatitis-b vaccine and you have taken full course of vaccination.In this case you are not supposed to take any additional dose.A booster is sometimes recommended in some high risk case at 10 years.Usually if given properly this vaccine is very effective and give protection rate of more then 95%.
