This last year was a real screw-up, schedule-wise, with my wife having hurt her back at work. We both took our 1st Twinrix shot in early February, the 2nd exactly a month later. However it looks like we screwed up on the 3rd shot. Somewhere I got the idea we had up to 12months from the 1st one to get the last...guess not. The quoted "6mths" have come & gone. My question is if we get the booster shot now, is it worth anything? Or do we have to start the whole process all over again? I'm glad I found this forum!
I think you will probably be fine getting the third shot now. When I took them I was going to move and could only take the third shot either a month early or a couple of months late. The doctor told me taking it late was not a problem. I would also suggest posting your question to the doc in the immunization forum.
