I took Hepatitis B vaccines i.e all three shots in my early childhood days in proper interval of time but I am not sure whether I took the booster dose or not? Is it alright or I have to take the full course again now?
In children after Hepatitis 3 shot booster is given after 5 yrs.
Booster is usually is not needed in adults and those people who have perfect immune system.
Still if you are concerned then get antiHbs titre done if it is less than <10mIU then you need complete schedule again if it is >10 mIU then you don't need it.
