When to get second Hepatitis A shot (Hafrix 1440)?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi.

About a year ago, I received a Hepatitis A shot (Havrix 1440) because I went on a journey around the world. Due to the corona crisis, I had to go home after only six months and I'll stay and work here for at least until July 2021 before I resume my journey.

I read that one should get a second Havrix shot 6-12 months after the first, which would be now. Should I get it now or wait before I start travelling again?
