Maximum Limit For Hepatitis B Vaccine?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. Hepatitis B vaccine is a vaccine that is done to prevent you from getting hepatitis B. This disease should be prevented because if you get infected and enter a chronic condition, the complications can lead to various things, even make your liver damaged and not functioning. Therefore it is important to provide this vaccine as a form of your protection.
Regarding your question, there is actually no maximum limit for hepatitis B vaccination. There is a minimum limit of 4 weeks or one month for the distance between the first and second administration. This minimum limit exists because if the second vaccine is given at a distance of less than one month, then your immune system still will not make optimal body defense, so you can say the vaccine is useless. So if in your case, you were first vaccinated on October 1, then on October 15 you have been vaccinated again, this second vaccine will be useless, because your immune system is still not finished responding to the first vaccination.
Then again the minimum distance is a month, but if you are finally vaccinated with a distance of more than a month, no problem. The impact is only you are in an unprotected condition that is longer than it should be. If you normally should have been protected from November 1, because you are late, you are not optimally protected from November 1 until the date you are vaccinated next. Therefore, for now there is no need to worry excessively, maintain endurance by living a healthy lifestyle, avoiding things that could be the cause of transmission of the hepatitis virus, and coming soon on the schedule specified. So, hopefully answering your question.
