Twinrix is a vaccine that protects against both the Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B Virus. Three Twinrix vaccinations are required to complete the series. The second shot is given 30 days after the initial vaccination and the third shot is administered 6 months after the first. As a matter of convenience, Twinrix reduces the number of shots needed to complete both Hepatitis A and B series from 5 to only 3.
