I got my first Twinrix...
I got my first Twinrix Vaccine (for prevention of Hepatitis A & B) on Aug 29, 2017. My second vaccine on Sept 29, 2017. Am I supposed to get my third vaccine 6 months AFTER my first vaccine on Aug 29? So would that mean I should get it this month (March)?

Hi Jeff! Thanks for requesting me:)

Yes, March 29th would be the time to get the third dose.

TWO QUESTIONS: 1 - If I have a recurrent herpes 1 outbreak, would it be safe to take the vaccine if I have an outbreak? 2 - 6 months from my first Twinrex vaccine is end of Feb/Beginning of March. So are you sure March 29 would be the time to get my third vaccine?

6 months from Sept 29th puts you at March 29th.

It is safe to receive the vaccine during a mild herpes outbreak. If you have systemic symptoms, though, like a fever, headache, and muscle aches you should wait until your symptoms clear.

My first vaccine was Aug 29 NOT Sept 29. So when should I get my 3rd vaccine? And does it have to be EXACTLY 6 months after first vaccine or can I wait 3-4 weeks longer then 6 months?

Ok, sorry for the misunderstanding. So Aug 29 will put you at the end of February, but because it is a shorter month you can go into the beginning of March. So now would be good.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
