Hello my name is***** am a board-certified pediatrician with over 15 years of clinical experience. I am and expert on vaccinations for children and adults and I am happy to help you. Can you please clarify what you meant by "In brief I missed two of the tubes shots"? What would you like to know specifically about the Hep A, B and Tdap vaccines?

Basically these ar the shots that were administered and to this date. I don't know which one but there's either have a or hep a or hep b that requires a three month repeat(twice). I can't recall which one it is that I need or if the one on this picture is even valid because I didn't get the other two

I see, thank you for that information. Your Tdap is good for 10 years, so no problem there. You need a 2nd hep A and a 3rd hep B to complete the series, and timing interval-wise, you can go ahead now. The 2nd hep A needs to be at least 6 months from the 1st one. The 3rd hep B needs to be 4 months after the 2nd, and 6 months after the 1st. In other words, you're good to go for your last hep A and B, which will provide you with lifetime immunity to hepatitis A and B viruses.

Any other questions I can help you with?

Ok that's is good news. There is no risk then that it has been too long and I have to start over is what you've stated I believe.

No, not at all, In fact, you're at just the right time now to receive both hep A and B vaccines to complete the series.

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.
