Response from Dr. Fried
While the likelihood of acquiring hepatitis B from this single encounter is not great, it is a good idea to get tested to put your mind at ease and be certain. As importantly, if you do not have immunity to HBV (per your blood tests), I would recommend getting the HBV vaccine.
