Hello,
A person who has been completely immunized against hepatitis B does not need repeat vaccination. Revaccination after successful vaccination is necessary, even after a period of 15 years. When anti-HBs levels decline to <10 mIU/mL, annual anti-HBs testing and booster doses should be considered for those with an ongoing risk for exposure. For persons with normal immune status who have been vaccinated, booster doses are not recommended. For more queries and concerns consult your doctor. Keep me posted.
Take care and regards!

I just want to ask if my wife who is vaccinated 5 years ago needs a booster dose and when?, since she has ongoing risk of exposure from me.
