Hepatitis B vaccine
My child has completed the 3-dose scheme of Engerix-B. Does he have to get any booster doses in the future?
Thank you very much for the question. As long as your child received the appropriately spaced doses of the single dose Hepatitis B Vaccine (Engerix-B), he/she should be fully immunized. Learn more from the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding the Hepatitis B Vaccine.
