The hepatitis vaccine consists of more than one dose. If your child did not receive the second and third in the series of vaccinations, it may be wise to revaccinate. There is no risk in revaccination. If you have your child's vaccination records, I recommend consulting a physician or the school nurse for further advice. Hepatitis B vaccinations are generally thought to last 20 years or more, when delivered correctly.

Vaccination protects hundreds of millions of animals worldwide from diseases and possibly death. Vaccination can be by a wide variety of routes: through water, baits, air spra…y, eye inoculation, intrinsically, orally or using the more classical injection. A vaccine is made from dead or weakened microbes, or parts (e.g. surface proteins of a virus) thereof. Once it enters the body, the immune system develops antibodies to it. In the case of exposure to the microbe in the future, antibodies will then fight off/destroy that microbe to prevent disease.
One vaccination Of MMR last for a lifetime. One vaccination for most does last a lifetime, however this is not always the case. People born in the late 60's early 70's need…ed a second in their late teens early 20's. There were outbreaks and those who get measles had received a shot when they were children but they did not get enough of the vaccine. Also there are some people who do even after the shot still have no titer. A titer shows immunity or proof one has had an illness. The blood of those who cannot hold an immunity in some way cleans it out because it shows they never had the shot in the first place and only records from a doctor will show they actually had the shot.
Vaccination is the administration of antigenic material (the vaccine) to produce immunity to a disease. Vaccines can prevent or lessen the effects of infection by many differe…nt viruses and bacteria. The material administered can either be live but weakened forms of pathogens (bacteriaor viruses), killed or inactivated forms of these pathogens, or purified material such as proteins.
as long as you want them to and keep taking Viagra ;) (kimberley & chloe is awesome tarquinne + Sarah were here 15/3/10')
People with certain sicknesess or dieases should get the shot to protect themself and help out their body and rpevent from preding the disease or sickness.
most people get vaccinated after a couple months after birth. ask your doctor for any re-up vaccination shots you may need.
How long is the vaccine in your body? The H1N1/09 vaccine is very quickly absorbed by your body and then it is up to your immune system to take it from there to develop …a resistance to the particular strain of flu virus that was in the vaccination and your body will develop the antibodies to protect against future invasions of the same virus. The vaccine was only there long enough to trigger your immune system to begin to work on the immune process. How long does immunity from a vaccine or having the flu last? If you are asking, "How long will I remain protected against H1N1/09 from a vaccination or from getting sick with the flu?", then the answer to this is a little more difficult to give. You will be protected for life against that exact strain of the H1N1/09 virus that was contained in the vaccine or that you caught which caused you to be ill, and you will likely also have some cross-over protection from very similar strains. However, viruses do mutate easily, and if later you are infected with another strain or mutation of the H1N1 virus, and if your immune system does not recognize it any longer because it has mutated to a different form, then you may have no immunity to that new strain. This is one reason we need to take annual vaccines for the rapidly mutating common seasonal flu strains. See the related links section below for a link to an article on the Time/CNN Health and Science web site about this subject. Here is an excerpt from that article: It turns out, however, that those antibodies [developed from a flu vaccine or from having the flu] - unlike those against illnesses like tetanus or whooping cough - can provide a formidable and life-long defense against the flu, as long as they're pitted against the correct strain. For an explanation, TIME asks Eric Altschuler, assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and co-author of a recent paper in Nature about antibodies to the 1918 pandemic flu virus. Q: How long do flu antibodies last? A: According to our study, it appears they can last the entire lifespan of the human organism - 90 years plus... More: It's important to keep a record of vaccinations so the doctor knows when your child is due for a booster. Also make sure your child gets the seasonal flu vaccine each year. Having been immunized last year probably won't protect someone from getting the flu this year because flu viruses constantly change. That's why the vaccine is updated each year to include the most current common strains of the virus. The flu vaccine reduces the average person's chances of catching the flu by up to 80% during the season. But because the flu vaccine doesn't prevent infection by all of the viruses that can cause flu-like symptoms, getting the vaccine isn't a guarantee that someone won't get sick during the flu season.
Different vaccines last for different durations, ranging from a few weeks to a lifetime.
Assuming you've already got the initial 3 shots over a period of 6 months, you should be set for life unless the blood test result shows a low and insufficient antibody level.… Have this blood test done 10-15 years after the completion of the initial 3 shots when in doubt.
No. it will only hurt if you think about it. honestly , all it is, is a pinch. I got mine yesterday. I was over exaderating. it is nothing compared to the flu shot or h1n1. yo…u will be fine. just don't think about it. if you think about it too much, then yes it will hurt . but that's mentally. so just relax. when it's done, you'll be like "that was nothing". good luck!
Can Hepatitis B vaccine elevate liver enzymes
In America, it depends on your age. I know that the younger you are, the more frequently you have to get vaccines. Yearly, in the teen years, boys usually have to get about 1 …more than girls. Every year (pre teen and teen) you have to get about 4 or 5. 5 or 6 for guys. It also depends when you had your last dose of that vaccine. Some vaccines you only have to get every 10 years (like tetanus)!
hi everyone, My doctor has advised me to wait a menstural cycle before planning for a baby. This is the info i would like to share to all others looking. Thanks.
A person should get the hepatitis vaccines every 3-5 years, on average. This can vary from person to person depending on their overall health and needs.
