Ros and I are heading to South-East Asia soon. Part of the prep work is to make sure we are healthy. We have an appointment at the travel health clinic to check on what shots we will need.
I had my Hepatitis shots in 2001 before we went to Peru. I asked my Doctor for a test to see if I was still protected. Well I was shocked to find out that I had no protection against Hepatitis A or B.
I had assumed that all would be well but I am glad that I decided to get checked. I will be getting the Twinrix shots again. Since time is limited I will follow the rapid vaccination schedule of 0-7-21. The initial shot followed by the second 7 days later and the third 21 days after the first. A booster shot is given 12 later.
If you have not been tested to see if are immune it may be time to make an appointment.
