Safe Distance To Get 2 Different Types Of Vaccinations?
hello my doctor wants to ask, this friday is my second Hepatitis B vaccine, if I am next Saturday, will I get the MR vaccine? if possible, then schedule a third Hepatitis B vaccine 4 weeks from the second Hepatitis B vaccine or MR vaccine? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The hepatitis B vaccine is included in the conjugate vaccine (does not contain a live virus), while the MR vaccine is a live vaccine (contains live attenuated virus). Giving these two types of vaccines does not require a certain time interval, can be given together, or on different days at any time. Therefore you can get the MR vaccine on Saturday next week.
If you are planning to get the hepatitis B vaccine 3 times, the recommended schedule is 0-1-6 months, meaning that usually the second injection is given within 1 month from the first injection, and the 3rd injection will be given within 6 months from the first injection. The minimum distance of the second and third vaccine is 4 months from the first vaccine and 2 months from the second vaccine. You should discuss again with the doctor who carried out the vaccination to confirm the schedule for your third hepatitis B vaccine.
In addition to information from me, hopefully enough to answer
