Follow dose sparing guidance ?
What do you have in stock ?
Does your risk assessment suggest she needs both antigens ?

We have Twinrix in stock, both adult and paed. My thought was , as we have it in stock and it is recommmended it would be prudent to complete her course. I just couldn't work out the change from Ambirix to Twinrix .

Ambirix and twinrix adult are essentially the same vaccines but the licensed schedules are different for different age groups. So if you are considering counting the first dose of Ambirix as equivalent to the first dose of adult twinrix then complete an interrupted twinrix course. This would be off licence and off PGD and require a psd but would make immunological sense
