Hello doctor … r Can you give the second hepatitis B vaccine before 1 month from the first vaccine? R nAnd if you give it back, can you or no? (More than 1 month)

1 Answer:

Hello Sindy


Giving hepatitis B vaccine to adults is given in 3 doses, which is the distance between the first and second administration is 1 month duration, while the third administration is 6 months from the first administration. Giving the second dose in less than 1 month from the first dose is indeed not dangerous, however the benefits of the vaccine can be less than the timely dose.


On the other hand the delay in administering the vaccine does not need to be restarted from the beginning but it is sufficient to continue administering the second and third doses where the distance between the second and the next third dose is at least 4 weeks apart. Unless the second delay is less than 5 months from the first administration, the third dose can wait 6 months from the first dose (not 4 weeks from the second dose)


But once you are expected to be able to undergo vaccination according to schedule so that the benefits of the vaccine are really maximum to be able to prevent you from getting hepatitis B. And do not hesitate to consult with an internist to assess your health condition directly.
