In a comparative study, it was noted that the frequency of solicited adverse events following the administration of Twinrix Adult is not different from the frequency of solicited adverse events following the administration of the monovalent vaccines.
In a clinical trial where Twinrix Adult was administered at 0, 7, 21 days, solicited general symptoms were reported with the same categories of frequency as defined previously. After a fourth dose given at month 12, the incidence of systemic adverse reactions was comparable to that seen after vaccination at 0, 7, 21 days.
