At what age should you get an hepatitis b vaccine?

Anytime. The original research on newborn hep b administration was done years ago in hawaii & it was one of the first states to see a decline in hep b disease across the population. It is commonly given now at birth, 1-2 m & 6m during infancy but can be given to older kids at any age. Those who missed the vaccine in childhood should look into it.
