Is Hep B-3 mandatory for 10 weeks old
My baby has been given hepatitis b doses at birth and at 6 weeks. When will the 3rd dose of hepatitis B will become due? In my baby's vaccination card there is no mention of hepatitis b 3rd & 4th dose. And directly Hep A1 dose is mentioned at 12 months. But in my friend' baby's vaccination card, hepatitis b 3rd and 4th dose is mentioned at 10 & 14 weeks respectively. I am really confused about the same. Kindly guide.
