Hep B

I just had my 5th Hep B shot today (9/7/2011)I was supposed to get a titer instead they gave memy 5th shot. They also told me they wanted to start the series again. Is that right? I was told once I completed the series i wouldnt have to start all over. Here are the days I took my shots.

I'm guessing that you didn't develop immunity after the first set of vaccines in 2010 and that's why you had to have them repeated.  Is that right?

Some people (like me) never show immunity no matter how many times they repeat the vaccines.  (however, the CDC says that we're probably still protected).  So if you don't develop immunity with the first set of vaccines you repeat it.  If you don't develop immunity the second time then you don't have to repeat them because otherwise you'll be repeating them until the cows come home.  You know what I mean, if they don't work after 2 times, they probably won't work after three or more times either.
