Hep B injection

As I work in a hospital I need my last hep B injection in October I have already had two a few months ago, I'm very worried as someone told me the other day that I should not be having them while TTC, I dont know what to do how will it affect me if I fall pregnant (which I doubt I will) I dont really want my employers to know I am TTC.

Could some one reasuure me please & should I have the last injection.

Thanks for reading guys :xxx3:

Hep B is a killed vaccine, the virus present in the vaccine is dead. It is not licensed to be given during pregnancy due to the fact that it is impossible to gain ethical approval for a study on almost any drug during pregnancy. However it has been given in pregnancy by accident many times and its perfectly safe. Where it has been given by accident, the manufacturer keeps data on what happens and I've spoken to them in the past about it and there have never been any problems. DOH guidelines on giving hep B vaccine in pregnancy state that if the recipient is at significant risk of hep B, then the benefits of vacicnation outweigh any potential risk. I've givne to a woman who was in the very early stages of pregnancy and she went on to have a perfectly healthy baby.

However, I doubt there is any data relating to its effect on TTC outcomes. Glaxo Smithkline make a hep B vaccine called Engerix B and if you call them on 020 8047 5000 and ask for drug information, they will be able to advise you if they have any data. If you get no where, pm me and when I'm at work on Tuesday I will contact them and see what I can find out.
