How long does the Hep B vaccination last My 12 year old son had this at birth and his school is now offering this vaccination for the grade 7s. Should he be vaccinated a 2nd time?
The hepatitis vaccine consists of more than one dose. If your child did not receive the second and third in the series of vaccinations, it may be wise to revaccinate. There is no risk in revaccination. If you have your child's vaccination records, I recommend consulting a physician or the school nurse for further advice. Hepatitis B vaccinations are generally thought to last 20 years or more, when delivered correctly.

In general, it lasts for 10 to 15 years. You might analyse blood for Hep. B antibodies and see if another dose is required.
usually 5-7 years
Current recommendations for immunization for hepatitis B demonstrate belief that overdose is not a concern. For example, for the high-risk patient who has a three-injection se…ries and does not demonstrate immunity via positive titer, a one-time repeat of the series if three is recommended. Similarly, for the patient unsure of Hep B immunization status who has a high-risk needle-stick, immunization is recommended.

It is not offered to the general public, so your question is irrelevant.
It last for 5 years. Trust me im a doctor
Different vaccines last for different durations, ranging from a fewweeks to a lifetime.
Assuming you've already got the initial 3 shots over a period of 6 months, you should be set for life unless the blood test result shows a low and insufficient antibody level.… Have this blood test done 10-15 years after the completion of the initial 3 shots when in doubt.
No. it will only hurt if you think about it. honestly , all it is, is a pinch. I got mine yesterday. I was over exaderating. it is nothing compared to the flu shot or h1n1. yo…u will be fine. just don't think about it. if you think about it too much, then yes it will hurt . but that's mentally. so just relax. when it's done, you'll be like "that was nothing". good luck!
If you have contracted chickenpox even if you have been vaccinated, a shorter duration is likely, with total duration of illness as short as five days. In addition, the lesion…s may not crust over as the presentation is different, so those affected by breakthrough chickenpox after vaccination can return to school or work 24 hours after new lesions have shown up.

There is no hep C vaccine. Please check your vaccination card and resubmit your question.
