I had taken my 3rd dose of hepatitis b vaccine when I was 9 months old. Now my college is having a vaccination drive of hepatitis b, if I get the same vaccine again is it beneficial, or it does not make any sense?

Best way to go ahead is get the antibody titres of Hepatitis B antigen done and if its less than 10 then you should get vaccine again else no need for re-vaccination, any unnecessary medication(VACCINE IS ALSO A MEDICINE) can have a side effect
