Since now I got to start doing work in New Orleans and St Bernard, I had to get some vacines. What are the down side to the Hep A&B vacines?

I never experienced any serious adverse reactions to the Hep A or B vaccines. Granted, the shots sucked and I got them in conjunction with a lot of other shots but the effect of all of the shots just left me sore and feeling like ass for a couple of days.

just a little sore form those. did you just start the series or finish it
hep a= 2 shots 6 mos apart
hep b = 3 shots (dont remember the interval.

OWWW! The Gamma Gobulin(sp?) for the Hep B looks like Karo Corn Syrup and goes in about as slow! Are you getting the whole series of three for Hep B at once, or someother way?

Edited to clarify...Also, there should be no concerns or side affects from these immunizations....

shots sucked, I had flu like symptoms after the first shot but none after the other two hep shots

I am getting the series of shots but know nothing about them. Some of the guys are just geting the A shots but I opted for the A&B.

I'm guessing you've had a tetanus shot that's still valid, that would seem to be an important one as well.
