You should go back to the hospital when they do have the vaccine available and continue with the schedule. You will not have to start again. After you get your second dose, you will get your third dose five-six months later. You must have all three vaccinations to have full immunity against Hepatitis B. It might also be a good idea to get a Hepatitis A vaccination. There is a combination Hepatitis A and B vaccine and it is given the same way and same schedule as the Hepatitis B. First dose, second dose in one month and the third in five-six months.
