|Vaccinated after exposure to HEP B
Oct 4, 2000
I recently went to the doctor to have some tests done due to a risky sexual encounter 5 months ago. They tested me for Hep B, Hep C, HIV, Mono, Liver, Kidney, Thyroid. All of it came back normal, except they said I was exposed to Hep B but did not build up immunity to it. The practitioner decided to give me a series of vaccine shots to boost up my immune system. Is it possible to develop antibodies with the vaccine even after being expose to Hep B?
