Immunity only Hep A: If you had 2 shot series for hepatitis a you are immune from that viral illness for life. There is a combination hep a/hep b vaccine but it sounds like you were not offered that choice & were started on hep a vaccine alone. Talk to your provider about adding hep b vaccine series now as a series of three doses.
