Comvax vaccine is usually given to children (born of mothers who do not have hepatitis B) as three separate injections. The first injection should be administered at about two months of age. Subsequent injections are then administered at about 4 months and at about 12 months of age. The vaccine should not be given before an infant reaches six weeks of age. Children who are older or who have special circumstances may be given Comvax with a different dosing schedule. Speak to a doctor about the best vaccination schedule for your child.
