  • Hepatitis B
  • For Children & Teens

Can adolescents be immunized on a 0-, 2-, 4-month schedule for hepatitis B?

Yes. There are data that show adequate seroprotection using this schedule in young adults. If this schedule is used, you should be aware that the studies were in young adults and might not translate to older adults (age 40 years or older). There are other schedules that offer flexibility in vaccination as well. View for a review of different schedules.
