Usually a lifetime: If hepatitis a and hepatitis b vaccines are provided in the standard manner recommended--receiving all the required doses (boosters) and spaced out appropriately, then a significant degree of protection should last for a lifetime. There are some exceptions and exclusions to this statement based on individuals with specific immunodeficiencies and as to whether the vaccines were stored properly.
