It depends if the 2 shots help the person immune sytem develop the HepB surface antibody.  It could be there after 2 shots, best to have all 3.  But there is even a small percentage that doesn't develop even after 3 shots.  So it's hard to say.  Best to complete the set of 3, then get tested to confirm immunity.
