Before receiving a dose of BayHep B, tell your doctor if you have a blood or blood-clotting disorder. Your doctor also should know if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any medicine made with human immune globulin.

You may experience a three month wait after treatment with BayHep B before receiving a vaccination against mumps, rubella or hepatitis.
