  • Where I live they just started with Hep A shots for Babys. My Daughter got her first shot at 18 months and then another shot at her 2 year check up.

  • I was vaccinated years ago. Be sure to follow through on all the shots. I believe the Hep B is a series of 3 shots over about 7 months. If you don't get them all, you won't be fully protected.

  • I worked at a kiddie camp and before I could work with the children, I had to get the vaccine. It's a good idea to get it because you NEVER know.............

  • You can catch hepatitis from an open wound, cut or sore. So yes I knew that you could catch at a barber or dentist. I keep up with my shots, just to be on the safe side. You never know.
