    Confusion about Hepatitis vaccine

    Today I finished my 3 injections for the Hepatitis A and B vaccine.

    The nurse at the GUM clinic recommended I have them because I have sex with escorts regularly.

    I had my first injection early in June but I can't remember the date, the second on the 19th June and third 22nd July.

    After I had my last injection I asked the nurse if I was now 100% protected, she said she didn't know and went to ask a Doctor in the clinic, when she came back she said even though I have had 3 injections I could be 5-10% protected against Hepatitis or 90%, but she didn't know.... I did not understand this at all as I thought by having these injections I was immune to Hep A and B totally. I came out of the clinic feeling worried and feeling this these injections were a complete waste of time.

    Am I supposed to be fully protected?
    Do I have to go back to have more injections? and if so when?
    I had all 3 injections in the space of a month, is this correct procedure?
