Before receiving Havrix you should know some important information about getting this vaccine. Havrix should be given in two doses, six to 12 months apart. Your doctor will tell you when you should come back for your second, or "booster," dose of Havrix. It is very important not to miss that second appointment. The only instance in which you should not get a second injection is if you had a severe allergic reaction to the first shot. You can still get the Havrix vaccine even if you have a cold or fever. However, if you have a serious infection, it's best to wait until you feel better before receiving the vaccine.
