3 doses are required: 2 doses are better than none, but the complete 3 vaccines series is necessary to achieve an adequate level of immunity.

No repeat: It doesn't matter very much when the third dose is taken. Five months is OK. You do not need to restart the whole series of injections.

3 shot course: Safe to take, even if not needed the second time around. May be given the rx if 1st course didn't work, or was interrupted.

BREAST FEEDING: What hepatitis vaccine did you have? You can continue breast feeding. It will not harm the baby. Your immunity will be transmitted to the baby.
