hepatitis vaccination to new born

Dear sir / madam,
My father has been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis but all other members are negative and got vaccinated.
Recently I have been blessed with a girl child, she is three month old . She have been vaccinated for hepatitis b, given two doses. Now I have brought my child to my hometown where she will live with my father. Due to some problem she is being fed with milk powder. So is it necessary to keep her away from my father till this dose? As she is being fed by milk powder instead of mothers milk, so immunity will be low. So would like to know is it safe to keep her with my father. She will not have contact with my father frequently but occasionally.
Is it necessary to keep her away from my father till my third dose?
Waiting for your replies.

HI Mahama

Did you tell the doctor who vaccinated the baby about your fathers hepatitis B status . I think there is some vaccine called HBIG which acts faster on the babies who are at risk for contracting Hep B . You should take advise from Stef who is an expert in this forum and he may guide you appropriately .

Thanks
