Hello I'm Dr Chip

The vaccination is basically good for ten years and if a person is still at risk for contracting the disease after that a booster shot is needed at that time

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
