Anybody had TWINRIX shots?
As we travel a lot was thinking about getting TWINRIX shots to prevent hepatitis... any body had TWINRIX?
Yes, I've had the Twinrix shots (this was in Ontario). Here's my understanding of the situation: Twinrix protects against Hep A + B for quite a long time, 20 years.
Of those two illnesses, I think Hep B is the much more serious one. My doctor had first given me a blood test to test if I already had immunity to Hep B, which I think was test #2 on this page. The test showed that I did not have immunity, so I had the Twinrix shot.
If you have that test done and it shows that you already have Hep B immunity, there's probably no point to getting Twinrix
