Arrow Hepatitis B Vaccine

How is the schedule for the Hepatitis B vaccine? Isn't it 1 to 2 months after the first vaccine, you have to get the second? What is the maximum time you can wait between the doses until you have to start over?

Re: Hepatitis B Vaccine

The Hepatitis B vaccine is given in three doses - Initial dose, second dose at least one month after the first dose, third dose six months after the first dose. If you are late on the second dose, just resume where you left off and get the third dose four months later. You do not need to re-start the series if you are late. It's also prudent to get a titer three months after your third dose to make sure the vaccination took.
