Question by mariacunning:
What are the effects of a newborn getting multiple HepB vacs w/in 24 hours?

My son was born on 1/27 that same day he received a HepB vac (standard for all newborns according to the WHO). The nurse did not record giving it to him. I was there when she gave it to him and received an immunization record. The next afternoon, another nurse came in saying she had just given him the same vac and handed me another immunization record. The attending MD was not worried, BUT *I* am concerned about any possible future or long term effects.

I have had trouble finding info regarding this type of circumstance. The information I have found is regarding the *correct* way (schedule) to provide the immunizations. Any information regarding multiple doses (w/in 24 hours of eachother) of HepB vacs in newborns that you can provide will be appreciated.

Thanks,
M

If you do not see any side effects count your blessings. We still do not know if that is the reason our 8 year old son (developmentall under 1) Has the problems he has. He is adopted and his mom tested hep B positive at birth so he was given I belive 2 mega hep B vacines plus I think a regular one also.
